63rd Annual Meeting, Society for birth defects research and prevention mission
The annual meeting of the Society for birth defects research and prevention mission provides the opportunity to promote our shared vision and scientific identity as researchers focused on the causes, manifestations, intervention, and prevention of birth defects and disorders of developmental origin. Scientific sessions highlight the latest scientific research in birth defects, diseases of developmental origin, and cutting-edge technologies. We will be presenting at a symposium session entitled “Applications of New Approach Methods in Developmental and Reproductive Toxicology”.
This session aims to bring together experts in the field of developmental and reproductive toxicology (DART) for an extensive exchange of knowledge, the definition of the current situation, and the identification of shortcomings and gaps in this field. DART is one of the large systemic toxicity areas not yet covered by accepted animal-free methods remaining the most animal-intensive areas of regulatory toxicology, thus most challenging for the development of approaches alternative to animal testing. There are promising potential solutions for other large systemic toxicities, e.g. sensitization and mutagenicity, but there is a large unmet need for DART. The complexity of systemic toxicity of reproduction and developing organism over the whole reproductive cycle requiring repeated exposure to substances cannot be addressed with just one test.
We will also be presenting a poster entitled, “ReproTracker as an In vitro Alternative to Animal Models for Developmental Toxicity Testing”.
