ENDpoiNTs  presented at the 17th biannual meeting of the International Neurotoxicology Association (INA), Sept. 29 – Oct. 3 2019, Dusseldorf, Germany. The ENDpoiNTs coordinator and various other researchers presented recent research in the ENDpoiNTs session on “Novel Testing Strategies for Endocrine Disruptors linked to Developmental Neurotoxicity”. Testing strategies based on in vitro batteries, sex-dependent effects of EDCs on hippocampus, to novel approaches to identify neurotoxic modes of action, and endocrine disruption in human neurodevelopmental models were discussed.
