11th Annual Meeting of the ASCCT

Wednesday October 19, 2022 01:00PM through Friday October 21, 2022 12:30PM

“Shifting the Paradigm to Next-Generation (Quantitative) Risk Assessment”

October 19-21, 2022

Sheraton Chapel Hill
Chapel Hill, NC


Submit your abstracts now! Deadline July 15th.


Abstract submission is officially open for the 11th annual meeting of the ASCCT. We hope you will join us for the first in-person meeting in three years.


Meeting Topics


The speaker lineup is still being confirmed; we are excited to announce the following confirmed speakers:

  • Gavin Maxwell, PhD, Unilever
  • Prof. Ellen Fritsche, MD, IUF - Leibniz Research Institute of Environmental Medicine
  • Tim Shafer, PhD, US EPA
  • Katie Paul-Friedman, PhD, US EPA

Oral presentation sessions are envisioned to include a focus on:

  • Next Generation Risk Assessment
  • Decision-Making with NAMs
  • Developmental Neurotoxicity
  • Human Data for WoE Toxicology
  • Integrated Approaches to Testing and Assessment
  • Ecotoxicology


Meeting Features


The meeting will feature the latest science in New Approach Methodologies and active discussions about the implementation of new science. The organizing committee is also planning fun activities, including a reception, science slam, expert panel, games, and maybe even a dance battle.

Students and early career scientists are especially encouraged to attend and present. The meeting will offer awards for students and early-career scientists, mentoring opportunities, and a continuing education course.

Given the ongoing pandemic situation, a limited virtual option for participation, and perhaps poster presentation, may be available, depending on the cost and availability at the chosen venue. We would prefer if oral and flash poster presenters are able to attend the event in person, barring extenuating circumstances.


Abstract Submission


Presentation proposals are welcome for science and policy work representing all aspects of in vitro and computational toxicology. While we are particularly seeking work that fits into the topics suggested above, other topics are also welcome.

Three presentation types will be offered:

  • Oral presentations of about 20 minutes
  • Flash poster presentations of about 3 minutes, plus physical poster
  • Physical 3’ x 4’ posters

Online uploading of poster files will also be possible.

The submission deadline for abstracts hoping to be considered for oral or flash poster presentations is July 15th. The deadline for poster only submissions is September 1st.

Submit your abstract here.
