Toxicology Working Group Summit

Coastal Response Research Center logo Coastal Response Research Center

Toxicology Working Group Summit

Tuesday, August 15, 2006 to Wednesday, August 16, 2006
Seattle, Washington

Meeting Goals

The objective of the Summit was to bring the Toxicity Working Group members and Center-funded PIs together to discuss strategies for transforming research results into operations and to identify people or teams to implement the strategies. Issues such as methods for modeling PAHs, appropriate exposure and analytical methods, and multiple mechanisms of toxicity associated with PAHs were examined.
