Clinical Trials on Chips to Tackle Rare Diseases
NICEATM is co-organizing a workshop in October 2022 on using new approach methodologies (NAMs) to address variability and susceptibility across populations. The workshop goals are to identify opportunities for NAMs to provide relevant information on population variability and susceptibility to environmental chemicals; and identify information needs for population variability and susceptibility where NAMs could be designed or improved to fill that need. In advance of the workshop, a webinar series is being convened to highlight NAMs that incorporate variability and susceptibility into the evaluation of chemical safety. The second webinar in this series will be convened on September 12 and will feature two presentations about using tissue chips to address medical needs of genetically susceptible subpopulations. The first speaker, Dr. Passley Hargrove-Grimes, Program Officer, NIH Tissue Chip Program, will discuss the “Clinical Trials” on a Chip program in relation to addressing variability and susceptibility across populations. The second speaker, Dr Arum Han, Director NanoBio Systems Lab, will discuss developing extracellular vesicle-based therapeutics against pre-term birth (PTB) through the use of maternal-fetal (FM) interface on a chip.

For your convenience, a printable agenda is available through our learning portal at pcrm.org/PopVars.

Recordings and other materials from this webinar will be posted on the learning portal.
