On Jan 10-11, 2019, the first annual Boot Camp for Risk Assessment was held in the Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences Institute at Rutgers University. Over the two days, the lecture topics included risk analysis, systematic review, data quality, weight of evidence, hazard identification, susceptible populations, exposure pathways, point-of-departure, reference values, and more. Case studies and hands-on exercises provided real world scenarios for application of course content. Participants of the Boot Camp included graduate students, postdocs, current scientists, and consultants spanning 15 different companies. Tours of core facilities within the institute were available to attendees.
