About the Ohio Valley SETAC Meeting
The Ohio Valley Chapter of the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) regional meeting will be held April 20, 2018, at the Ohio State University Museum of Biological Diversity, 1315 Kinnear Rd, in Columbus, OH. Ohio Valley SETAC is a regional professional meeting of toxicologists, chemists, environmental engineers, and risk assessors and policy experts.
Society for Risk Analysis Ecological Risk Assessment Specialty Group
In 2018, Ohio Valley SETAC will partner with the Society for Risk Analysis Ecological Risk Assessment Specialty Group to focus on recent innovations that have broader toxicological and risk assessment implications. This joint regional meeting will feature plenary sessions in the morning, followed by an afternoon poster session and student poster competition.
“New Tools and Technologies: Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment” is the meeting theme. Presentations on all topics in environmental toxicology and chemistry, including environmental policy will be considered.
About the Ohio Valley SETAC
The Ohio Valley Chapter (OVC) is a regional chapter of the Society for Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) North America and consists of a group of volunteers dedicated to improving regional network of scientists, regulators and educators. Founded in 1984 originally as the Indiana/Kentucky/Ohio (IKO) SETAC chapter, OVC SETAC organizes small regional scientific conferences for us to meet our neighbors and potential collaborators, become familiar with advances in many environmental fields, and give opportunities (and sometimes money!) to students to present their work and meet new mentors.
OVC SETAC has grown close to 100 members from Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Michigan and West Virginia including several corporate affiliates, and it is now offering professional development workshops along with discussions of topics that are timely and of both regional and national interest. Services to students in the region have expanded providing an outlet for presentation of student research.
The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is a not-for-profit, global professional organization comprised of some 6,000 individual members and institutions from academia, business and government. Since 1979, the Society has provided a forum where scientists, managers and other professionals exchange information and ideas on the study, analysis and solution of environmental problems, the management and regulation of natural resources, research and development, and environmental education.
SETAC’s founding principles are:
- Multidisciplinary approaches to solving environmental problems
- Tripartite balance among academia, business and government
- Science-based objectivity
