Cell therapy: Solving a Multifaceted Conundrum
Speakers: Matt Hewitt, Shawna Jackman, Simon Authier, and Biologics Consulting
Subject matter experts will discuss and debate development related questions specific to cell therapy. This session will explore key success factors from CMC to efficacy to non-clinical toxicology for this unique test article modality. Pitfalls and opportunities for the design, conduct and interpretation of cell therapy programs will be addressed.

Tuesday, March 29, 2022, 1:30 PM - 2:30 PM PST | Room 23B
When Gene Therapy Meets Regulatory Toxicology: From Strategies to Solutions & Applications
Speakers: Maggie Elorza, Audrey DiFruscia, and Clotilde Lecrux
Gene therapy has emerged as a leading test article modality carrying high hopes for a wide range of diseases. Innovative gene delivery strategies need to address regulatory toxicology requirements across the development continuum.

SEND Updates and Technical Rejection Criteria
Speaker: Audrey Walker
The Standard for Exchange of Nonclinical Data (SEND) was published in 2011 and mandated since December 2016. Effective September 15, 2021, the FDA will not accept electronic submissions that do not have study data in compliance with the required standards. This session will describe the current requirements, what new requirements are on the horizon along with the Technical Rejection Criteria, and the Study Data Technical Conformance Guide updates.


The society of toxicology, SOT is virtual in March 2021. Our experts will be available to discuss drug development projects throughout the meeting.
