A4 Webinar Series: How to Get to Safer Alternatives Using Non-Animal Testing Methods: PART II

Wednesday, May 20, 2020



Time: 9 AM PT | 12 PM ET



The Association for the Advancement of Alternative Assessment’s (A4) winter 2020 webinar introduced New Approach Methods (NAMs) to our A4 community. Given significant interest in continuing the discussion on NAMs, our spring 2020 webinar will dive deeper into the application of these predictive toxicology tools in alternatives assessments. A4 will facilitate a discussion-focused webinar to address topics that emerged from the A4 community, including: how to think about NAMs in an alternatives assessment context versus a regulatory safety assessment; how NAMs are being used in alternatives assessment in combination with animal test data; and how to utilize NAMs in a consistent manner; among others.

We encourage those new to the topic of NAMs to view Part I prior to Part II, click here to view Part I.
