Poster Abstract Deadline Extended to September 14 for Rabies Vaccine Workshop

The abstract submission deadline has been extended to September 14 for the October 16-17 workshop, “Implementing Nonanimal Approaches to Human and Veterinary Vaccine Testing: Achieving Scientific and Regulatory Success for Rabies and Beyond.” The workshop will be held at the National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland. It is co-organized by NICEATM and the International Alliance for Biological Standardization.

Scientists conducting research aimed at reducing or replacing animal use for testing or development of any vaccine or antigen are invited to submit abstracts for the workshop poster session. Accepted abstracts will be published in the workshop program e-book and may also be referenced in the workshop report to be published in Biologicals. The August 31 deadline has been extended to September 14. Submission instructions, registration information, and other details about the workshop are available on the workshop website.

This workshop will bring together scientific and regulatory leaders from government, academia, and industry to develop recommendations to advance alternative methods for human and veterinary rabies vaccine testing. Additional workshop sessions will spotlight state-of-the-science animal alternatives for other antigens and future possibilities for advancing animal reduction and replacement initiatives.
