WEBINAR | Alternative Solutions in Safety Assessment

When: August 25, 2021, 10 – 11:30 a.m. ET

C-Path’s Predictive Safety Testing Consortium (PSTC) invites you to this free webinar, the second in its 15th anniversary educational webinar series, to explore the use of alternative solutions in safety assessment in drug development, including microphysiological systems (MPS) and In Vitro models. Pre-recorded presentations will provide an overview of current alternatives being used throughout Industry, highlight how alternative solutions are being investigated for use within specific PSTC working group studies and collaborations, offer a regulatory perspective on these alternatives, and offer insights into emerging and future work in this area. Presenters and panel members will engage in real-time discussion about these alternative solutions, the role of these emerging alterative play in drug development decision making, and the regulatory impact and future of alternative solutions such as MPS and various In Vitro models. Ample time will be provided for attendees to ask questions and engage in discussion.
