"Tox21" Program update
Presented by Raymond Tice, Ph.D., NIEHS

Tox21 is a unique collaboration between several federal agencies to research 
and test chemicals in a new way. The goals of the Tox21 partnership are to:

 *   Identify patterns of compound-induced biological response in order to 
characterize toxicity/disease pathways, facilitate cross-species extrapolation, 
and model low-dose extrapolation
 *   Prioritize compounds for more extensive toxicological evaluation
 *   Develop predictive models for biological response in humans

The Biomolecular Screening Branch of NIEHS, which Tice heads, administers the 
high throughput screening (HTS) program, a major new initiative within NTP's 
Roadmap to achieve its vision for toxicology in the 21st century, and a major 
part of the Tox21 collaboration. The Roadmap places an increased emphasis on 
the use of alternative assays for targeting the key pathways, molecular events, 
or processes linked to disease or injury, and attempts to incorporate them into 
a research and testing framework. This webinar will introduce the program and 
detail work that has occurred since the collaboration started in 2008.
