e-Resources to Revolutionise Toxicology: Linking Data to Decisions

7 – 11 Oct 2019 / Leiden, NL

Activity details

This workshop aims to map out how and where digital resources can aid to revolutionize toxicology. More specifically, the workshop has the objectives to: a) identify how digital resources will enhance the AOP paradigm; and b) to develop four partial quantitative AOPs by utilizing currently available digital resources, providing better insight into data requirements including accessibility. The four partial quantitative AOPs, related to skin sensitization, liver toxicity, neurotoxicity and carcinogenicity, should be considered as case studies that will facilitate the evaluation of e-tools and e-infrastructure for developing quantitative AOPs. The workshop will provide a forum for experimentalists to meet with bioinformaticians and modellers and draft together an inventory of e-tools that facilitate the development of quantitative AOP frameworks using digital resources.

Thomas Exner (Edelweiss Connect) will participate at this event with a presentation on "Towards building harmonized and interoperable e-infrastructures for reproducible new approach toxicology", a joint contribution from OpenRiskNet (Grant Agreement 731075), EU-ToxRisk (Grant Agreement 681002), NanoCommons (Grant Agreement 731032), ACEnano (Grant Agreement 720952) and ADVaNCE (Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual Fellowship).
