All Things Chemical: TSCA New Approach Methodologies — A Conversation with James W. Cox [PODCAST]
This week I sat down with James Cox, M.S., Senior Scientist with B&C. James is an exceptional biologist with significant experience assessing the risk of industrial chemicals. Before joining B&C, James served in a variety of leadership positions in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Office of Pollution Prevent and Toxics, one of which was Chair of the Risk Assessment Technical Team, which provided recommendations to inform EPA’s policy positions on New Approach Methodologies or NAMs. James discusses NAMs, their significance in chemical risk assessment under the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA), how NAMs will enable diminished reliance on animal testing, and some of the challenges facing chemical stakeholders in moving away from animal testing. Now, here is my conversation with James Cox.
