Evidence Based Chemical Assessment
Katya Tsaioun, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg Scholl of Public Health (EBTC)
Summary: In recent years the public increasingly demanded transparent and objective risk assessment of chemicals that are used in their daily lives and are released into the environment. These safety assessments become the scientific foundation of risk analysis and subsequently public policy. Multiple efforts around the world are aimed at achieving this goal. In this talk we will bring attention to the methodology that has been in existence for 3 decades and has revolutionized the quality and effectiveness of clinical research and became known as evidence-based medicine (EBM). In clinical research, the EBM approaches brought consistent transparency, objectivity, standardized framework and over time brought clinical research to higher standard.
