The Evidence-based Toxicology Collaboration at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health (EBTC) will be presenting at 4 events at the Society of Toxicology annual meeting in New Orleans, LA.
We hope to see you there!
- On Monday Morning, March 14 9:30 AM to 12:15 PM Martin Stephens will be presenting in the Workshop Session: Scientific Reproducibility: Does This Pose a Problem for 21st Century Toxicology? Marty is presenting at 10: 35 am on "Evidence-Based Approaches for Enhancing the Reproducibility of Toxicological Studies".
- On Wednesday, March 16, 2016 9:30 AM to 12:15 PM there are two EBTC events simultaneously:
- Katya Tsaioun will be co-chairing with John-Michael Sauer, Executive Director of the Critical Path institute, a workshop "Paradigm Change in Toxicology: What Will It Take to Bring Advances in the Science of Toxicology into Regulatory Use?". The workshop is aiming to define a path towards systematic assessment of the criteria for inclusion of new science into regulatory decisions for different industries that rely on regulatory approvals of chemicals. The workshop presenters include presentations from Derek Knight (European Chemicals Agency), Abigail Jacobs (US FDA CDER), Yvonne Will (Pfizer), Marco Corvaro (Dow Agrociences), and Gladys Ouedraogo (L'Oréal). The workshop will conclude with a presentation on the importance of evidence-based methods in advancing regulatory science by Ellen Silbergeld from Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health and Daniel Mandrioli from Ramazzini Institute.
- A poster presenting the results of the work of one of the EBTC working groups will be shown (#2632, P130): "A Systematic Review of the Zebrafish Embryological Test as an Alternative to the Mammalian Developmental Test (OECD 414): A Pilot for an Evidence-Based Toxicology Approach".
- And don't forget to stay for the yearly Satellite Meeting on 21st Century Toxicology on Thursday afternoon, March 17, 12:30 PM to 4:00 PM. The workshop is chaired by Professor Thomas Hartung and is located at the Jefferson Ballroom, Hilton New Orleans Riverside: “Updates on Activities Related to 21st Century Toxicology and Related Efforts: Invited Presentations and Open Microphone”. Martin Stephens will be giving an update on the EBTC. The Satellite Meeting traditionally has been encouraging open participation and has an open mike session, so please come and join the dialogue!
