    February 23, 2018 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM “Addressing Uncertainty and Population Variability in Risk Assessment: Challenges and Opportunities” Weihsueh A. Chiu, Ph.D. (Professor in the Department of Veterinary Integrative Biosciences at the Texas A&M University College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Sciences) Friday, February 23, 2018 at 12:00 in Barus & Holley room 190 Abstract: The rapid advance of high-throughput testing and other new biological technologies has the potential to address a broad range of needs in health risk assessment. One important need is for risk assessments to quantitatively characterize uncertainty and variability, so as to provide decision-makers with a sense of the confidence in estimated risks and the extent to which susceptible individuals are protected. New and emerging tools, methods, and approaches to characterize uncertainty and variability are beginning to be incorporated into risk assessment. A common theme for all these approaches is the integration of population-based data and experimental models using probabilistic computational/statistical models. For instance, probabilistic PBPK modeling approaches provide a characterization of toxicokinetic uncertainty and variability, but have been applied in only a few cases such as the common Superfund contaminant trichloroethylene. On the other hand, approaches to address uncertainty and variability in toxicodynamics or downstream disease processes are only beginning to be explored. Additionally, a new probabilistic framework developed by the World Health Organization provides a potential means to integrate both old and new data streams together, while also providing more quantitative and transparent characterizations of risk. Taken together, these new approaches have risk management implications related to specifying the acceptable levels of uncertainty, population incidence, and magnitudes of effect in a particular risk context.
