SETAC Latin America 13th Biennial Meeting

15 Sep 2019 - 18 Sep 2019 | Cartagena, Columbia

Session Tracks: Aquatic Toxicology, Ecology and Stress Response Explores ecology, ecotoxicolgy and response to stress of all aquatic systems, including lentic and lotic freshwater systems, estuaries, coastal and marine environments Terrestrial Toxicology, Ecology and Stress Response Covers all life forms (avian and mammalian wildlife and other organisms) living in areas from the deserts to the tropics and everything in between Environmental Risk Assessment Bridges both aquatic and terrestrial environments, and all potential stressors (physical, chemical, biological and biotechnological) with human and ecological endpoints towards the goal of integrated holistic assessment such as “One Health” Policy, Management and Communication Includes all aspects of science application in policy or regulations and management (regulatory science), as well as science commination to stakeholders in diverse audiences Engineering, Remediation and Restoration Addresses remediation and restoration of stressor impacted air, water, and soil and sediment, including tools for predicting, monitoring and evaluation; technologies and methods for remediation and restoration; environmental engineering; green remediation; damage assessment; and strategies for management Chemistry and Exposure Assessment Comprises all aspects of chemical analysis, monitoring, fate and modeling, green chemistry and alternative chemical assessment Predictive and Statistical Toxicology Encompasses in silico and in vitro tools and methods involving adverse outcome pathway (AOP), mode of action, molecular toxicology, OMICs, animal alternative testing, quantitative structural activity relationship (QSARs), high-throughput techniques and emerging approaches for statistical toxicology Systems Approaches Uses cross- and trans-disciplinary approaches seeking to address complexity and large-scale issues by applying and integrating concepts such as life cycle assessment, sustainability, ecosystem services, impact assessment and environmental economics. Topics include regional and watershed-scale environmental management, climate change, resiliency and other related areas.
