Surprising Outcome of the Peer Review of the Draft Technical Reports of National Toxicology Program’s Radiofrequency Radiation Studies in Rodents

On March 26 – 28, 2018, the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) conducted an intense peer review of draft technical reports of the results of the National Toxicology Program (NTP) study of exposure of rodents to radiofrequency radiation. The public review process was attended by members of the public and was broadcast live from the NIEHS campus in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, USA. Scientists responsible for the studies made presentations to a panel of external experts on the methodologies used in the studies and the evaluation of the results and answered questions.

Snow + Sun = Fun: 2018 Z43 Ski Day

A record 35 participants from SPEAG, IT'IS, and ZMT joined the Z43 Ski Day 2018 on Thursday, 22 March atop Klosters-Madrisa. The snow conditions were outstanding, and the skiers and snowboarders enjoyed the broad, uncrowded pistes as well as the powder-ride areas. Some opted for the 8.5 km sledding run down to Saas, others enjoyed the sun and the fantastic views of Klosters and the Prättigau valley exploring Madrisa's groomed winter walking trails. After a final ski-break at the Madrisa-Zügenhüttli, the day was capped off with a lovely meal in the Turmstube of the Restaurant Schloss Brandis in Maienfeld.

Many thanks to Manuel Murbach for organizing a great outing!
