Presentation: The Future of Testing in the 21st Century: An EPA Perspective

Robert J. Kavlock, Ph.D., received his doctorate in biology from the University of Miami in 1977 and has been with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency since that time. Since 2005, he has been the director of the newly formed National Center for Computational Toxicology (NCCT) within the EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD). The mission of the NCCT is to provide improved hazard and risk identification for assessment of environmental chemicals through the development of tools such as ToxRefDB, ToxCast, and ACToR. Prior to that time he spent 15 years as the director of the reproductive toxicology division in the National Health and Environmental Effects Research Laboratory/ORD. In 2007, he was the recipient of ORD’s Statesmen of the Year Award. He has published more than 170 scientific papers, 16 book chapters, and edited three books, including co-editing the Global Assessment of the State-of-the-Science of Endocrine Disruptors (World Health Organization, 2002). He is a past president of the Teratology Society and is active in the Society of Toxicology. He was a member of the ALTX4 Study Section of NIH (1997-2001), holds adjunct appointments at Duke University and North Carolina State University and is a member of the editorial boards of Environmental Health Perspectives, the Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, and Birth Defects Part B: Developmental and Reproductive Toxicity.
