Workshop Overview

A scientific workshop was held February 8-10, 2011 in Alexandria, Virginia, to discuss the state-of-the science and perspectives in bioaccumulation (‘B’) assessment.  Previous workshops have been devoted to emerging methods for in vitro determination of chemical absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) in fish, and extrapolation of laboratory-based test results to the field.  The purpose of this workshop was to summarize recent findings, prioritize research needs, and identify regulatory issues not being addressed by ongoing or planned work.  The workshop was attended by scientists from academic, government, and private sector laboratories, as well as risk assessors representing Environment Canada, the European Union, and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
