Jun 6 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

 

 

This course will provide a detailed description of the Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) framework, and guidance on best practices for contributing to the AOP knowledge base. It is intended primarily for researchers and risk assessors from academia, government, public, and private sectors who have an interest in contributing to the AOP knowledge base, or who are generating data that can be used to develop AOPs. This course will also be beneficial to those wanting to apply AOPs in risk assessment and research scenarios. Information from the lecture components will be reinforced with practical examples and in-class exercises.

Course Schedule:
1) History and Overview of AOPs
2) AOPs 101: Detailed description of AOP components
3) Best Practices for AOP Development
4) Let’s make an AOP! Practical AOP development exercises
