On October 10-11, 2013, the National Toxicology Program Interagency Center for 
the Evaluation of Alternative Toxicological Methods and the U.S. Environmental 
Protection Agency will present a workshop addressing development of new methods 
to assess and predict whether substances might affect cardiovascular safety in 
humans. The workshop, titled  Translational Alternative Models and Biomarkers 
Predictive of Drug or Chemical Cardiovascular Risk, will bring together 
scientists from the pharmaceutical and industrial chemical industries, 
academia, and regulatory agencies. Workshop participants will consider new 
approaches to cardiovascular toxicity testing that will provide better safety 
and risk assessments while reducing or eliminating animal use, how to 
prioritize research initiatives in this area, and how to bring together data on 
test substances from various test methods and sources to develop better 
cardiovascular toxicity hazard assessments.

The workshop will include presentations, discussion sessions, and a poster 
session. More information about the workshop, including links to registration 
and abstract submission forms, can be found on the NIEHS website at 
http://tools.niehs.nih.gov/conference/cardiovascular_toxicity/index.cfm.
