Additionally, Dr. Nikaeta Sadekar, RIFM’s Lead Respiratory Toxicology Scientist, will present at the workshop session In Vitro Inhalation Exposure for Regulatory Acceptance. Dr. Sadekar’s presentation will focus on using realistic exposure values from computer models, such as the Creme-RIFM Aggregate Exposure Model, to make in vitro (cell culture) testing comparable to actual human exposure scenarios. Dr. Sadekar presents on Monday, March 15, from 11:15 AM–2:00 PM. See a detailed program schedule.
