Egesta Lab principal investigator Annegaaike Leopold has been appointed as the SETAC Europe’s representative, one of 32 organizations allotted a seat at the European Commission’s high-level roundtable to support the new chemicals strategy.

Congratulations, Annegaaike!

The round table will convene with the Commission on May 5th for their inaugural meeting to discuss the roundtable’s role and implementation of the strategy.
