Chemicals in consumer and industrial goods are being scrutinized like never before. Rapidly developing information, in combination with increased regulatory and retailer initiatives to promote chemical safety, has led to increased scrutiny in chemical ingredients on the market. Failure of a company to fully evaluate developing toxicity information for its chemical portfolio may lead to unexpected “toxicity surprises” that can cause—in addition to possible environmental and health implications—business disruptions, declines in brand value, and product liability claims. At the same time, closely monitoring these data allows a company to build a plan that demonstrates a proactive commitment to product stewardship.
In this webinar we will help audiences understand new tools that are available to make informed decisions about ingredient selection by identifying and evaluating potential chemicals of concern. Such activities will mitigate business risk and are integral to a proactive approach to product stewardship.
Ari Lewis, M.S., is a Principal at Gradient with almost 20 years of
consulting experience focusing on toxicological evaluation and
human health risk assessment. She will discuss how toxicity
information generated through regulatory developments can be used
to identify emerging chemicals of concern.
Patrick McMullen, Ph.D., is the Director of Computational Toxicology
at ScitoVationwith a background in molecular biology, engineering, and
computational science. His presentation will focus on the use of in silico
and in vitro methods to identify emerging chemicals of concern.
Adam Grossman, Ph.D., the Vice President of Modeling and
Senior Scientist at Praedicat, where he builds a wide variety of
risk models. He will discuss how trends in peer-reviewed
literature can be used to predict emerging chemicals of concern.
