Draft agenda (updated May 16)

Slides and video from the meeting will be posted on this page, and all registrants will be emailed when they are available.

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.

This event will be held in person at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD, with an option for remote viewing. Representatives of ICCVAM member agencies will describe their agencies' activities both to advance new approaches to safety testing of chemicals and medical products and to reduce the amount of testing required. Registered participants may ask clarifying or follow-up questions of the ICCVAM members about their presentations during the meeting.
