Computational toxicology is emerging at the intersection of toxicology, systems biology, biostatistics, and computer science, that may enhance scientists’ capacity to estimate risk or outcomes associated with an organism’s exposure to environmental stressors. This meeting provided focus by assessing the state-of-the-art in the field and reviewing the practical applications of the new science. The potential for and translation of these new technologies was explored by workshop participants who are leading the way in data collection, mining and modeling, and pioneering novel technologies-conferring with scientists from regulatory bodies who are challenged with incorporating new science into decision making.
