SRP trainee Andy Shapiro won first place in the poster competition at the OpenTox USA 2013 meeting.

HAWC is a modular, cloud-ready, content-management system to synthesize multiple data sources into overall human health assessments of chemicals. 

This project was developed in collaboration with EPA/NCEA, and integrates the human health assessment workflow from literature search and review, to data extraction and evidence synthesis, dose-response analysis and uncertainty characterization, and creation of customized reports. By providing a web-based workspace, teams can collaborate and have real-time access to ongoing and completed assessments.

Shapiro will conduct two additional webinars this January. 

The webinars are in collaboration with NIEHS/NTO Office of Health Assessment and Translation and are intended for US and international stakeholders who are involved in conducting scientific literature reviews for human health assessments.
