Animal Testing and New TSCA
This week, I got to have a roundtable discussion with several of my colleagues about a Strategic Research Plan released by the EPA earlier this summer, outlining their approach to reduce and replace “vertebrate” testing. What we’re really talking about, of course, is animal testing. In keeping with the commitment outlined in 2016’s Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), the EPA proposes several so-called New Approach Methodologies, or NAMs, which they hope will be able to replace and reduce animal testing.
Weighing in on this hot topic are several of my colleagues: Dr. Rich Engler, our director of Chemistry, Dr. Jane Vergnes, our senior Toxicologist, and Dr. Oscar Hernandez, our senior regulatory chemist.
