NTP roadmap for the future, celebration of 25 years

What: The National Toxicology Program (NTP) will present its new strategy "A Roadmap for the Future" -- A symposium to unveil research priorities and to celebrate more than 25 years of NTP scientific progress

When: Tuesday, May 10: 9:00a.m. 5:00 p.m.
Wednesday, May 11: 9:00 a.m. - noon

Where: The National Academy of Sciences
2100 C Street, NW
Washington, DC

Invited Speakers:

  • Dr. Elaine Faustman, Professor of Environmental and Occupational
  • Health Sciences, University of Washington School of Public Health and Community Medicine
  • Dr. Bernard D. Goldstein, Dean, University of Pittsburgh Graduate School of Public Health
  • Dr. Christopher Portier, Associate Director of the NTP, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH
  • The Honorable Paul G. Rogers, Hogan & Hartson, L.L.P., former U.S. Congressman from Florida With opening comments from
  • Dr. Elias Zerhouni, NIH Director
  • Dr. Lester M. Crawford, Acting Commissioner, FDA
  • Dr. John Howard, Director, NIOSH

Why: The NTP is at the forefront of developing and using new methods for testing toxicity to predict hazards to humans. A new refined strategy will guide the expansion of the NTP to meet emerging research needs, including examining the potential safety issues related to herbal medicines and supplements, cell phone radiofrequency transmissions, and nanoscale materials. The strategy will also provide a long-term vision that moves toxicology away from an animal-based enterprise, including developing non-mammalian models.

"A Roadmap for the Future" defines how NTP will integrate new methodologies with proven approaches to "test smarter."

Background: For more than 25 years, the NTP, an interagency program within the Department of Health and Human Services, has made extraordinary progress in evaluating chemicals and other agents
