Evidence-based Toxicology for the 21st Century: Opportunities and Challenges
Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
How should the emerging methods of 21st century toxicology be assessed for their “fitness for purpose”? Traditional validation approaches—which typically take several years and millions of dollars to complete—are not well-suited to this task, given the rapidly evolving science and technology in this field. The nascent discipline of evidence-based toxicology (EBT), which is based on principles and approaches from evidence-based medicine (EBM), can help address the challenge of critically assessing the new methods themselves as well as the data generated by these and traditional methods.
This workshop, hosted by the multi-stakeholder EBT Collaboration, will feature sessions on validation of high throughput methods, priority areas for deploying the new methods, case studies of past and current EBT-related efforts, and governance and work processes of the EBT Collaboration as it moves forward.
