2014 TOXICOLOGY AND RISK ASSESSMENT CONFERENCE
SAVE THE DATE
April 7-10, 2014
The website for the 2014 Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference is now being updated. We, the planning committee regret any inconvenience that cancellation of the 2013 conference may have caused and appreciate your forbearance in this matter. The committee wishes to utilize the hard work of so many members of the toxicology and risk assessment community and so the 2014 meeting will have the theme originally planned for 2013 and an agenda based largely on what was intended for TRAC 2013. Further information regarding TRAC 2014 will be forthcoming on this website. Thank you.
The Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference 2014
Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
The 2014 Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference (TRAC) will be a 4-day meeting focusing on topics in risk assessment principles and practice. The conference provides attendees with an overview of current research, methodologic, and practice issues that are the focus of risk assessment efforts in various Federal agencies, academic institutions, industry, and other organizations.
The theme of TRAC 2014 is “Toxicology and Risk Assessment Guidance: From Principles to Practice in the Age of Omics, Osomes, and New Opportunities.” This theme will examine the -omics fields, such as toxicogenomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, components of the concept of the exposome, and other emerging technologies, for current state-of-the-science opportunities for setting guidance and exposure limits.
The Plenary session, on the first day of the main conference, and specific workshops on risk assessment methodologies held on the days before and after the two main conference days, comprise TRAC 2014. Conference registration information and a preliminary agenda will be available at http://www.cdc.gov/niosh/conferences/TRAC/default.html.
Registration cost for the two main conference days, April 8-9, 2014, is $250. Other levels of registration fees are available. Workshops have separate registration fees as described on the conference website.
Also featured is a poster session on the evening of April 8, 2014, with a trainee competition, for which the poster abstract deadline is pending. The poster session is designed to provide participants the opportunity to share their work in a focused, collegial environment. We invite poster abstract submissions of broad interest to toxicology and risk assessment. Further, we invite work that has been submitted in the previous year at other relevant conferences to stimulate discussion in the more focused environment of TRAC.

Continuing education for this activity is pending. See final announcement for details.
