ToxStrategies’ Health Sciences Practice Leader, Dr. Daniele Wikoff was an invited speaker at EPA’s ‘Advancing Systematic Review for Chemical Risk Assessment’ workshop held in Arlington, VA on December 16-17, 2015. Dr. Wikoff presented ‘Lessons learned in protocol development and implementation of multi-endpoint systematic reviews’ and participated in a panel discussion on the integration of mechanistic data in a systematic review.
The goal of this workshop, was to facilitate discussion on both advances and applications of methods for the identification of relevant epidemiological, toxicological, and mechanistic scientific data to be relied upon in chemical assessments. Sessions involved a number of scientific experts and were part of a three-part workshop series supporting implementation of a systematic review process within the EPA’s IRIS program.
Dr. Wikoff has extensive expertise in the area of systematic reviews, particularly with regards to the assessment of adverse effects potentially associated with consumption of caffeine. Dr. Wikoff has also registered several systematic review protocols, which can be viewed here.
