Such approaches may include, but are not limited to, the use of structure/activity relationships (SAR) and consideration of chemical groups with similar toxicological properties (e.g., read across approaches) or relevant calculations (e.g., threshold of toxicological concern evaluations, quantitative risk assessments, margin of safety, etc.).In addition to supporting the implementation of this coordinated approach, the position is responsible for spearheading the use of computational, or in silico, tools for review by the CIR Expert Panel and future integration into safety assessments. Beginning with the implementation of currently available computational programs (e.g., OECD QSAR Toolbox), and building the CIR Expert Panel’s confidence in the use of such tools, the incumbent will also lead efforts conducted by technical vendors to further develop a CIR Chemistry and Toxicology Database & Workflows.
