MAY 25, 2018 — OR&R’s Ken Finkelstein attended the 24th annual meeting of the North Atlantic Chapter of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (NAC-SETAC) on May 22-23 at the University of New Hampshire campus in Durham, New Hampshire.
Ken is on the board of directors of the chapter and helped plan the meeting and the short course that took place on May 21. In addition, he arranged the keynote lunchtime speaker on May 22 - David Vallee, Hydrologist-in charge-of the NOAA/NWS Northeast River Forecast Center - whose presentation was very well received. Of interest to those in DARRP was a platform presentation on an easily used biomarker that infers endocrine disruption in finfish.
