FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel: Aug. 25-27
EPA's FIFRA Scientific Advisory Panel will meet Aug. 25-27 at EPA's lobby level conference center at One Potomac Yard (South Bldg.), 2777 S. Crystal Dr., Arlington, Va. to evaluate a computational approach developed for pesticide inert ingredients and antimicrobial pesticides to help prioritize candidate chemicals for Tier 1 screening under the Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program. The approach aims to predict a chemical's estrogen receptor binding affinity based on data derived from two in vitro assays. EPA's background paper, supporting materials, charge questions to the panel and an agenda will be available ahead of the meeting at www.epa.gov/scipoly/sap.
