You are invited to: The Emergence of Systematic Review and Related 
Evidence-based Approaches in Toxicology, an EBTC Workshop, to be held November 
21, 2014 at The Johns Hopkins University Bloomberg School of Public Health (615 
N Wolfe Street, Baltimore, MD 21205).

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<http://www.ebtox.com/>, will showcase these emerging efforts and 
address opportunities and challenges to the expanded use of these tools within 
the toxicology.
