NIH Visitor and Security Information:

The overall goal of this series of workshops is to develop guidelines for investigators developing new systems for the pre-clinical drug development process on how to validate these new technologies so that they become useful, meaningful tools. Specific emphasis will be on model systems that may augment existing models, especially animal models, in the FDA drug approval process. This workshop will build upon the success of the AIMBE/NIH Summit held March 19, 2012, and more recently the AIMBE Workshop held at NIH September 17-18, 2012.
