Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
615 N. Wolfe Street
Baltimore, MD

Registration is now open. To register, please email Jamie DeRita.

Systematic review and related evidence-based approaches are beginning to be translated from healthcare to toxicology. They provide transparent, objective, and consistent tools to identify, select, appraise, and extract evidence across studies. The workshop, hosted by the Evidence-Based Toxicology Collaboration, will showcase these emerging efforts and address opportunities and challenges to the expanded use of these tools within the toxicology.

We have a discounted hotel rate available on November 20th and 21st with a price of $129/night at The Lord Baltimore Hotel. When making reservations, please use code 1411JHCAAT.
