SCAHT Director Ellen Fritsche is participating in panel discussion on "Regulatory acceptance of NAMs — How to define criteria ?" on 25 April

In order to contribute to greater acceptance of NAMs (reliability, robustness and method validation), the Pro Anima Scientific Committee, supported by PARC and the FC3R, is organizing and leading a series of discussions with key players (researchers, industry, regulators).

Panel discussions are free of charge, and registration is required.

Session 1 : Regulatory acceptance of NAMs — How to define criteria ?

Thursday, 25 April, 1 p.m. (CEST)

It is getting clearer now that if we want to accelerate the adoption of NAMs (non-animal new approach methodologies), there is a need for more global harmonization of the criteria used for qualification of the techniques and validation of those criteria. To ensure confidence in new models, regulatory agencies need these to be qualified, confirming they are robust, that they faithfully mimic human level functionalities and that it is appropriate for specific contexts of use (COU). This panel discussion will tackle this challenging objective of defining acceptance criteria.
