Though the basic principles for identifying hazard and characterizing reproductive risk for human pharmaceuticals have not changed over the past 50 years, the concepts regarding the ability of agents to affect reproductive and development outcomes continue to evolve. Since the adoption of the ICH S5(R2) Guideline in the early 1990s, continued advances in science, technology, and regulatory knowledge, and application of the 3Rs principles, mean the drug development industry is now on the forefront of modern approaches to testing of medicinal products. 

Join your colleagues for a morning of stimulating presentations, as Charles River scientists introduce modern testing paradigms and new strategies to potentially reduce animal use. Our agenda includes plenty of time for networking and discussion.
