Toxicologists, biologists, and computational modellers gathered at a workshop organised by the Centre for chemical safety assessment (ECETOC) to discuss how to develop and integrate quantitative Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOP) into EU chemical safety assessments.   AOPs are scientific ‘roadmaps’ that connect the dots between an initial molecular exposure to a substance or a stressor and any eventual harm that may occur to living organisms or ecosystems.
