The Johns Hopkins Evidence-based Toxicology Collaboration (EBTC) is involved in several scientific projects that have an over-arching goal of bringing the principles of evidence-based medicine to toxicology. The EBTC is funded by Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing and is governed by the Board of Trustees and is advised by the Scientific Advisory Council, both comprised of leaders in their fields and representing toxicology stakeholder organizations: government, academia, industries, and non-profit groups.
