Testing of chemicals

Webinar Series on Testing and Assessment Methodologies

 

The OECD webinars on Testing and Assessment Methodologies focus on selected ongoing projects that will result in the short to medium term in new methodologies to test and assess chemicals. These free webinars are open to potential end users among regulators and contract research organisations who want to get familiar with new standards and approaches. Video recordings of our webinars are made available online afterwards.

Register for THE WEBINAR on Adverse Outcome Pathway Knowledge Base (AOP-KB) and AOP developing tips

  Adverse Outcome Pathway Knowledge Base (AOP-KB) and AOP developing tips webinar

When: Thursday 30 January 2020 @ 1 pm (CET, Paris time) / 7 am (EST) 
Where: The convenience of your computer

This third webinar on Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) will focus on the core information and telecommunication technologies applications that were built to support AOP development, management and dissemination. Tools and technical tips to facilitate scientific knowledge assembling and evaluations will also be presented. The AOP framework implements a collaborative and innovative approach for collecting mechanistic knowledge from various sources that can eventually support chemical safety assessment.

Presentations by:
 > Nathalie Delrue from the OECD Environment Directorate will briefly introduce the presenters and scope of the webinar
 > Clemens Wittwehr from the European Commission Joint Research Centre will provide an introduction on AOP-KB 
 > Dan Villeneuve from the US Environmental Protection Agency will speak about making AOP-KB entries easy (technical tips). 
 

> Holly Mortensen from the US Environmental Protection Agency will present ways to retrieve information from databases and other AOP tools. 

Duration: 1 hour (Presentation of 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of Q&A).

webinar on Adverse Outcome Pathways: assembling and evaluating weight of evidence and quantitative understanding

webinar on Adverse Outcome Pathways: assembling and evaluating weight of evidence and quantitative understanding

When: Wednesday 15 January 2020 @ 1 pm (CET, Paris time) / 7 am (EST)
Where: The convenience of your computer

This second webinar on Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) focused on the importance of weight of evidence in the process of developing AOPs, the types and lines of evidences assembled, examples demonstrating the lines of evidence and understanding why quantitative AOPs are developed. The AOP framework is a collaborative tool that applies an innovative approach for collecting mechanistic knowledge from various sources that can eventually support chemical safety assessment.

Presentations by:

  • Magda Sachana from the OECD Environment Directorate introduced the presenters and scope of the webinar
  • Bette Meek from the University of Ottawa provided an introduction to WoE for AOPs



  • Kristie Sullivan from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine shared examples of implementing WoE in an AOP
  • Dan Villeneuve from the US Environmental Protection Agency spoke about quantitative understanding of relationships and why that’s important. 

Duration: 1 hour (Presentation of 45 minutes followed by 15 minutes of Q&A).

The webinar video recording will be available shortly.
