Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry in Helsinki

19-05-29 SETAC 2019 HAW Hamburg

Sebastian Hoess from Ecossa and Susanne Heise and Sonja Faetsch from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences attended the 29th annual meeting of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) Europe in Helsinki in May.  The theme of this year’s conference was ‘One Environment * One Health * Sustainable Societies’.

Over five days, scientists, assessors, regulators and managers from academia, business and government, representing over 60 countries, met to take advantage of a wide variety of training, networking and learning opportunities available at the event. This event is considered essential if you are interested in emerging research, regulatory developments and the latest methodologies in environmental toxicology and chemistry.

‘Sullied Sediments’ was given a strong showing with three posters presented by Susanne, Sonja and Sebastian, which can be viewed below:

Microbiological Biotests for Sediment Risk Assessment – A Question of Reproducibility and Reliability

Endocrine Disruptors in the Aquatic Environment – Is it Enough to Screen for Estrogens Only

Reducing Uncertainty in Sediment Contact Testing by Considering Natural Variability and Harmonizing Control Sediments
