OpenTox at NAS Conference 2018
OpenTox story told at National Academy of Sciences
The National Academy of Sciences invited OpenTox Association President Barry Hardy to present experiences and case examples from the first decade of OpenTox at a workshop in Washington DC. "Whereas I used to explain our goals as a combination of programming interfaces and ontology - and indeed these are important - I now prefer the picture of sharing many diverse dishes on a table accompanied by good conversations and outcomes," Barry explains.
The workshop, "Informing Environmental Health Decisions Through Data Integration", brought together scientists, policymakers, risk assessors and regulators to explore the promise and potential pitfalls of environmental health data integration. Barry was on the panel "Integration of Data for Risk Assessment" with Kris Thayer, Environmental Protection Agency, and Tim Pastoor, Pastoor Science Communications, LLC.
