Big Data Outreach Meeting at SOT Meeting on March 23
Author: Marilyn Matevia, The Humane Society of the United States (HSUS)
“A discussion of the NIH BD2K initiative and how it might advance the practice of Toxicology and Risk Assessment
The fields of toxicology, pharmacology and risk assessment are undergoing a revolution in the use of pathway-based approaches to evaluate the biological effects of chemicals. These fields would benefit from accessible tools that make big data convenient and intuitive to integrate, analyze, query and visualize. The aim of this ancillary meeting is to reach out to toxicological scientists and introduce them to the NIH big data programs. A panel of researchers will provide short overviews of the BD2K and LINCS initiative and thoughts on how big data can be leveraged for protection of people and the environment.
