ICCVAM’s goals include promotion of national and international partnerships between governmental and nongovernmental groups, including academia, industry, advocacy groups, and other key stakeholders. To foster these partnerships ICCVAM holds annual public forums to share information and facilitate direct communication of ideas and suggestions from stakeholders. This year’s meeting will include presentations by NICEATM and ICCVAM members on current activities related to the development and validation of alternative test methods and approaches, including activities relevant to implementation of the strategic roadmap for establishing new approaches to evaluate the safety of chemicals and medical products in the United States.
This meeting is open to the public; interested persons may attend in person or view the meeting remotely by webcast. Those attending in person should register to attend by May 11 and review information for visitors on the National Institutes of Health website. Registration to view the webcast is required and will be available through the end of the meeting on May 24.
Time will be set aside for questions and public statements on the topics discussed. Attendees need not register in advance for the opportunity to ask questions or make comments specific to presentations. In addition to time for questions or comments following each scheduled presentation, time will be allotted during the meeting for oral public statements with associated slides on topics relevant to ICCVAM’s mission.
