For anyone interested, the NIEHS Superfund Research Program is inviting you to join them for the second session of the “Risk e-Learning” webinar series on Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs). For anyone who missed the first session (“Introduction to the Adverse Outcome Pathway Framework”) and wishes to “catch up” before the second webinar on Nov 29th, you can watch this webinar here: EPA CLU-IN website. That first webinar [and a research example (attached), published by Pelkonen et al. –– on behalf of the EFSA WG EPI1 and its other members] were discussed on these GEITP pages Sept 19th and 22nd [see far below].
The webinars are free and open to the public.

The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) Superfund Research Program (SRP) invites you to join us for the second session of the Risk e-Learning webinar series on Adverse Outcome Pathways, which are structured ways to represent biological events leading to adverse health effects. The webinars are hosted on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Contaminated Site Clean-Up Information (CLU-IN) website.
Session II – Assembling and Assessing Adverse Outcome Pathway (AOP) Information will be held Wednesday, November 29, 1:00 – 3:00 pm EST. To register, visit EPA’s CLU-IN Training & Events webpage. In the second session, presenters will discuss the development of AOPs and how they may be used to support hazard and risk assessment. I will moderate the session.
Carole Yauk, Ph.D., head of the Genomics Laboratory in the Environmental Health Science and Research Bureau at Health Canada, will briefly review common AOP development principles and will present a case study to walk through the development of one AOP using the AOP wiki.
Ed Perkins, Ph.D., senior research scientist at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Research and Development Center, will discuss efforts to merge the AOP’s simple framework for linking effects to a regulated outcome with more biological pathways and measurements, such as -omics, to support hazard and risk assessment.
Justin Teeguarden, Ph.D., chief exposure scientist at the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory and leader of the Oregon State SRP Center Research Translation Core and Texas A&M SRP Center Exposure Science Core, will introduce similar frameworks for organizing exposure information (like the aggregate exposure pathway) and discuss how they can provide critical information about the magnitude of stress and key information about how environmental concentrations can be related to human exposures.
