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, showcased these emerging efforts and address opportunities and challenges to the expanded use of these tools within the toxicology.
