The Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (SETAC) is hosting the 36th North America annual meeting this week and has asked experts from across academia, government and industry to answer questions on a wide array of environmental issues. We will have experts across a wide range of environmental science topics, including neonicotinoids (pesticides) and bees (pollinators), risk assessment, microplastics, nanotechnology, personal care products and pharmaceuticals (in the environment), endocrine disruptors, metals in the environment, environmental disasters (such as oil spills), and many more. If you have questions about chemicals or toxicants in the environment – we’ll try to get you the best possible answers according to the latest science. Please do note that we are asking members of the society who represent researchers from a variety of disciplines and sectors; the answers are not official SETAC positions. We encourage discussion and debate! Just please keep it professional. For more information on SETAC see http://www.setac.org Post your question and the organizers of the conference will find someone to answer it as soon as possible. Answers to questions will begin at 1PM EST (6 PM UTC, 10 AM PST) and continue throughout the day until 9 PM EST (1AM UTC, 5 PM PST), with a few breaks.
