Location: Rodbell Auditorium, David P. Rall Building, NIEHS, Research Triangle Park, North Carolina
The role of systematic review and meta-analysis in preclinical science, toxicology, and public health is evolving rapidly and these changes are reflected in our meeting themes. We are planning a symposium for newcomers and experts alike, with strategic overviews and explicit examples of how systematic review approaches are being applied and methods are evolving to answer a diverse range of research questions.
Abstracts will be reviewed by the organizing committee on originality, structure, and relevance for the symposium. In addition to meeting themes, new/late breaking systematic reviews or meta-analyses of preclinical, toxicology, or public health topics will be considered.
Instructional training in systematic review methods may be offered prior to the symposium on August 23, 2017. The organizing committee is planning a systematic review instructional training day for individuals that are new to the field and looking to learn more on the use of systematic review methods for animal studies or toxicology. Please email SR-MeetingSupport@icf.com to confirm your attendance. As details are finalized, confirmed attendees will be notified.
The symposium is organized by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) at the National institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), Collaborative Approach to Meta-Analysis and Review of Animal Data from Experimental Studies (CAMARADES), Environmental Protection Agency/National Center for Environmental Assessment/Integrated Risk Information System (EPA/NCEA/IRIS), University of Tasmania School of Medicine, UCSF Navigation Guide, and the Systematic Review Centre for Laboratory Animal Experimentation (SYRCLE).
