New Technologies Special Interest Group
Leader: Kevin S. Sweder, Syracuse University

We will discuss new approaches to determine biochemical/biological endpoints that may inform mechanistic understanding and toxicological information about environmental, therapeutic, and endogenous exposure to different agents. With the development of new and highly sensitive assays that can measure changes in single molecules or cytokine release in cells, it seems that we should be able to expand our observations of toxicological changes beyond “looking under lampposts.” Although more sensitive assays may identify more liabilities for exposure to endogenous and exogenous agents, they will also provide greater opportunities for ameliorating toxicities in Phase 3 clinical trials, post-marketing populations, and in populations exposed to environmental pollutants.
