NIEHS Webinar Series on Adverse Outcome Pathways Continues November 29
The Superfund Research Program of the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) is presenting a webinar series on adverse outcome pathways (AOPs), structured ways to represent biological events leading to adverse health effects. The second webinar in the series will be presented November 29. Presenters will discuss the development of AOPs and how they may be used to support hazard and risk assessment.
- Carole Yauk of Health Canada will present an overview of AOP development.
- Ed Perkins of the U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center will discuss how an AOP framework can be integrated with in vitro and in vivo data to support hazard and risk assessment.
- Justin Teeguarden of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory will discuss approaches to exposure assessment.
The webinar will be hosted on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information website. Registration is free. More information about the webinar series is available on the NIEHS website. This page also a link to a recording of the first webinar in the series, which introduced the AOP concept.
The webinar series provides background information for an April 2018 workshop on Understanding the Combined Effects of Environmental Chemical and Non-Chemical Stressors: Atherosclerosis as a Model.
