Cambridge Academy of Therapeutic Sciences



CAMS event on Alternative Approaches for Human-Relevant Toxicity Assessment

Date: 10th July 2024

Time: 12:30 - 19:00

Venue: The Discovery Centre (DISC) - AstraZeneca PLC, CB2 0AA

The Keynote lecture will be given by Professor Menna Clatworthy (University of Cambridge), and guest speakers from the Investigative Toxicology Leaders Forum will also be in attendance.

In this event we will showcase alternative approaches and recent advances in complex in vitro models (e.g MPS) from industry and academia to complement traditional in vivo studies, and how these are used to investigate human-relevant toxicity and translate these findings to the clinic.

With speakers from AZ, GSK, Bayer, Sanofi, Merck, Novartis and Abbvie, as well as expertise from the MRC’s Toxicology Unit and the Centre for Drug Safety Science, we will give a snapshot of where the field of medicines safety is going, and where we can learn from successes of the past to accelerate moving forward with novel therapeutic modalities.
