Integral Scientists to Present at SETAC 38th Annual Meeting in Minneapolis

Compilations of exposure response data for probabilistic toxicity assessment of polychlorinated biphenyl in fish tissue. (see Posters TP034 and TP036).

Scientists from Integral Consulting Inc. (Integral) will be presenting at the 38th Annual Meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on November 12–16, 2017.

Damian Preziosi, Rob Pastorok, Ph.D., Stacey Ng, Emma Mendelsohn, Mala Pattanayek, and Heather Summers will present on various topics, including probabilistic methods for toxicity data, tissue-based PCB toxicity reference values and exposure-response curves for fish, sustainable remediation of solid wastes, and the value of refining risk assessments for remedial design.  Integral Principals Judi Durda and Paul DeLeo, Ph.D., will also attend.

Integral scientists will host Exhibitor Booth #638 showcasing our firm’s key services in the fields of health, environment, technology, and sustainability.
