The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Toxicology Program (NTP), will hold a teleconference meeting of its Board of Scientific Counselors (BSC). The BSC, a federally chartered, external advisory group composed of scientists from the public and private sectors, will review and provide advice on programmatic activities.
The preliminary agenda topics include:
- Evolving the paradigm: In vivo to in vitro extrapolation
- Nano/microplastics and health effects: Novel agents bring novel challenges
- Traffic-related air pollution and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy: Disease as a toxicology focus
- NTP studies of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances: Understanding human translation
