Instem Event Schedule

Monday March 20

Exhibitor Hosted Event: The life of a SEND Dataset

Monday, March 20, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (CT), Room 101C

The past few years have seen the proliferation of standardized nonclinical data through the implementation of the SEND standard. This session looks at the full lifespan of the study data as they relate to the SEND dataset and address some of the challenges and explore the opportunities they bring.

Presented by Marc Ellison, Director of SEND Solutions, Instem & Brenda Finney, PhD, Instem’s Director of Translational Solutions

Tuesday March 21

Exhibitor Hosted Event: Implementation of a Weight of Evidence Carcinogenicity Assessment Aligned with ICH S1B

Tuesday, March 21, 4:30 PM - 5:30 PM (CT), Room 101B

This presentation will review the state-of-the-art in assessing carcinogenicity based on the ICH S1B weight of evidence (WoE) addendum, including progress towards developing a transparent and defendable protocol based on the 6 WoE factors.

Presented by Glenn Myatt, PhD, SVP of In Silico & Translational Science Solutions, Instem, Arianna Bassan, Principal Consultant, Innovatune and Frances Hall, PhD, Senior Director, In Silico Solutions, Instem

Wednesday March 22

Workshop: Assessing and communicating the developing safety profile of a new product
What do we need and how do we find it?

Wednesday, March 22, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (CT)

Join Brenda Finney, PhD, Instem’s Director of Translational Solutions, for an interactive workshop to discuss best practices and challenges facing project toxicologists in gathering and reviewing study data across a development programme.

During the workshop, we will discuss the current practices and tools used when working with the data associated with a new therapeutic. These discussions will allow attendees to explore and assess the processes and information needs of toxicologists charged with monitoring and submitting safety assessments throughout the development lifecycle of a new therapeutic. 

Exhibitor Hosted Event: Assessing N-nitrosamine Potency Classes

Wednesday, March 22, 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM (CT), Room 101D

This session will review recent regulatory and industry updates in the assessment of N-nitrosamine potency classes based on various collaborations. It will outline new defendable methods, including SAR and read-across approaches, based on a mechanistic understanding of N-nitrosamine carcinogenicity.  

Presented by Kevin Cross, PhD, VP of Product Development, Instem & Arianna Bassan, Principal Consultant, Innovatune
