Ecometrix at Laurentian SETAC 2024

On June 13, our toxicologist and risk assessor will co-facilitate a short course that introduces conceptual site models and problem formulations.

Event date Jun 13, 2024 - Jun 14, 2024
Event location McMaster University, Hamilton

This June marks the 28th edition of the Laurentian SETAC Conference, an event that aims to promote and enhance communication, education, and networking in environmental toxicology and chemistry.

On its opening day, our toxicologist and risk assessor Andrea Amendola will co-facilitate a short course ideal for students, new graduates, and early career professionals on conceptual site models and problem formulations.

As a blueprint for risk assessments, the problem formulation provides the objectives, framework, and approach for a risk assessment, identifying the contaminants of concern, human and/or ecological receptors, and exposure pathways.

The course will be delivered as lectures and breakout sessions where participants can put the concepts into practice. Where the first part will focus on the human health problem formulation, the second will lean into the ecological problem formulation. Both will be relevant to the Ontario Regulation 153/04 Risk Assessment Framework.
