The Superfund Research Program (SRP) presents "Assessing Ecological Risk of Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals: State-of-the-Science Approaches" featuring Dr. Gerald (Gary) Ankley (USEPA/ORD Mid-Continent Ecology Division) and Dr. Nancy Denslow (University of Florida). Dr. Ankley will focus on the problems EDC present for ecological risk assessment and will talk about the types of assessment tools needed and their potential applications. Dr. Denslow's presentation will show how molecular biomarkers and "omics" technologies may be useful in risk assessment, focusing on a Lake Apopka study of largemouth bass, fathead minnows, and organochlorine pesticides. This is the first session of the RiskeLearning Spring/Summer 2010 series "Ecological Risk: New Tools and Approaches."
