Discussions at workshops and other events are often published in workshop summaries, websites, newsletters, and other formats to preserve and make publicly accessible the information or discussions from the event.
Toxicity Pathway-Based Risk Assessment: Preparing for Paradigm Change: A Symposium Summary (2010)
New tools and technologies are bringing about a revolution in toxicity testing. In 2007, a committee of the National Research Council proposed a vision that embraced recent scientific advances and set a new course for toxicity testing. In this new paradigm, biologically important perturbations in key toxicity pathways are evaluated with new methods in molecular biology, bioinformatics, computational toxicology, and a comprehensive array of i...

Validation of Toxicogenomic Technologies: A Workshop Summary (2006)
The emergence of toxicogenomics technologies hold much promise for helping scientists better understand the effects of exposures to chemicals in the environment. Toxicogenomic technologies enable researchers to study the genes expressed and the proteins and metabolites produced in response to a particular exposure. This report summarizes a recent National Research Council workshop on the validation of toxicogenomic technologies that focused o... More >>
Application of Toxicogenomics to Cross-Species Extrapolation: A Report of a Workshop (2005)
Some of what we know about the health effects of exposure to chemicals from food, drugs, and the environment come from studies of occupational, inadvertent, or accident-related exposures. When there is not enough human data, scientists rely on animal data to assess risk from chemical exposure and make health and safety decisions. However, humans and animals can respond differently to chemicals, including the types of adverse effects experience... More >>
