On Wednesday 15 January 2020 the OECD hosted a second webinar in the series of Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs). It focused on the importance of weight of evidence in the process of developing AOPs, the types and lines of evidences assembled, examples demonstrating the lines of evidence and understanding why quantitative AOPs are developed. The AOP framework is a collaborative tool that applies an innovative approach for collecting mechanistic knowledge from various sources that can eventually support chemical safety assessment. Magda Sachana from the OECD Environment Directorate introduced the presenters and scope of the webinar.
Webinar on Adverse Outcome Pathways: assembling and
evaluating weight of evidence (WoE) and quantitative
Wednesday 15 January 2020
@ 1 pm (CET, Paris time) / 7 am (EST)
• Why WoE is important for AOP development?
• What types/lines of evidence are assembled?
• Are there examples demonstrating the lines of evidence?
• Why quantitative AOPs are developed?
Scope of the Webinar
Bette Meek Kristie Sullivan Dan Villeneuve
University of Ottawa Physicians Committee for
Introduction to WoE
Examples of implementing
Quantitative understanding of
and whythat’s important
• WoE evaluation provides transparency and confidence on
assembling scientific knowledge in AOPs.
• Quantitative AOPs further enhance the confidence of their
use in the regulatory arena.
• Data generated in your lab can be an important line of
evidence needed to strengthen the development and use
