Registration Open for Rabies Vaccine Workshop; Poster Abstracts Due August 31
Registration is open 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.
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.
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. Abstracts are due August 31. Submission instructions, registration information, and other details about the workshop are available on the workshop website.
