Key Characteristics of Male Reproductive Toxicants

The original working group met at UC Berkeley on March 7-8, 2018, and was hosted by Martyn Smith (UC Berkeley) and Lauren Zeise (OEHHA, CalEPA). The group was co-chaired* by Xabier Arzuaga (U.S. EPA) and Gail Prins (Uni. Illinois, Chicago). The group examined the literature and developed 12 key characteristics (KCs) of male reproductive toxicants and subsequently published a paper in 2019, Arzuaga et al, 2019, which included additional invited experts**.
