The conference on the Risk Assessment Paradigm After Ten Years covered a large number of topics of interest to toxicologists, risk assessors, and environmental managers. Leading scientists presented a range of topics in six sessions. These included introductions to the past, present, and future of the basics of risk assessment and a case study on new approaches to the risk assessment of a Halon replacement (HCFC-l23). Possibilities for advancing the science of risk assessment were considered, including the use of physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling for noncancer risk assessment dermal exposure, and lactational transfer. Other mathematical approaches were considered for cancer and noncancer risk assessment. Mechanisms of biological action responsible for injury were considered for their implications. Finally, critical issues in risk communication were discussed. A poster session presenting research in risk assessment and toxicology supplemented the platform presentations. This conference was supported by the Air Force, Army, Navy, and Environmental Protection Agency and was attended by representatives of government, industry, and academia.
