ICCVAM Public Forum: May 2021

Interagency Coordinating Committee on the Validation of Alternative Methods (ICCVAM): advancing alternatives to animal testing

Webcast: May 27, 2021

Agenda (Final draft)

Presentations and a video from the meeting will be posted on this page when available. An announcement will be sent out to all registrants and via NICEATM News.

ICCVAM’s goals include promotion of national and international partnerships between governmental and nongovernmental groups, including academia, industry, advocacy groups, and other key stakeholders. To foster these partnerships ICCVAM holds annual public forums to share information and facilitate direct communication of ideas and suggestions from stakeholders.

Usually an in-person event, the 2021 public forum was presented as a webinar. Representatives of ICCVAM member agencies described activities both to advance new approaches to safety testing of chemicals and medical products and to reduce the amount of testing required.
