BACKGROUND.

The SAB is undertaking an initiative to develop advice to assist the EPA in advancing the application of ORD's Computational CompTox research for human health risk assessment to meet the agency's programmatic needs. ORD’s CompTox Research Program conducts innovative research that integrates advances in molecular biology, chemistry and innovative computer science to more effectively and efficiently rank chemicals based on risks. The goal of the CompTox Research Program is to provide high-throughput chemical screening data and decision support tools for assessing chemical exposure, hazard, and risk to human health and the environment.
