Human Health Risk Assessment: A case study application of principles in dose response assessment
Zhao, J. AND L. Lizarraga. Human Health Risk Assessment: A case study application of principles in dose response assessment. Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference, Westchester, Ohio, April 23 - 26, 2018.
Present risk assessment training to public at Toxicology and Risk Assessment Conference to further advance the application of the latest risk assessment methodologies.
This case study application workshop will build on fundamental concepts and techniques in risk assessment presented and archived at previous TRAC meeting workshops. Practical examples from publicly available, peer reviewed risk assessments will be used as teaching aids. Course modules will be organized according to the key components of the risk assessment process: hazard characterization, dose response modeling (including Benchmark Dose methodology), dosimetric adjustment, point of departure selection, uncertainty analysis and risk value derivation such as reference dose and cancer slope factor. The participants will have a unique opportunity to learn and apply conventional methodologies, detailed considerations and emerging approaches in support of human health risk assessment.
