Advancing the Science Webinar Series: Chemical-Induced Asthma


This free webinar series will discuss the advances being made with chemical-induced asthma and the role of clinical, toxicological, and epidemiological research in regulatory and hazard characterization approaches. Topics include:

  • Current Clinical Perspectives
  • The role of toxicology in asthma hazard assessment
  • Environmental contributions to asthma prevalence: assessing the link between exposure and disease
  • Asthma risk assessment: A regulatory perspective
  • Asthma-specific hazard characterization approaches: A novel approach to a complex problem
