About Midwest SETAC
Midwest SETAC is a non-profit (organization dedicated to the use of multidisciplinary approaches to examine the impacts of chemicals and technology on the environment. The chapter is operated as an independent affiliate of the international SETAC organization.
Midwest SETAC promotes research, education, training and development of the environmental sciences and encourages scientists to disseminate information on environmental toxicology and chemistry. Midwest SETAC sponsors scientific and educational programs to provide a forum for communication among professionals in government, business, academia and other segments of the environmental science community involved in the use, protection and management of the environment.
Protecting water resources from overuse and impairment presents a major challenge for meeting human, environmental, economic, and social needs for sustainable development. This year’s meeting theme highlights the diversity of challenges associated with water resources in urban, peri-urban, and rural settings. Presentations (platform or poster) are welcome in all areas of science applicable or relevant to Midwest SETAC, and we especially encourage topics that speak to the overall meeting theme.
SETAC’s mission is to:
- Promote research, education, training and development of the environmental sciences.
- Encourage interactions among environmental scientists and disseminate information on environmental toxicology and chemistry.
- Sponsor scientific and educations programs and provide a forum for communication among professionals in government, business, academia and other segments of the environmental science community involved in the use, protection and management of the environment
