Laboratory Animal Sciences 2019

Our 8th Annual Laboratory Animal Sciences Virtual Event is now available On-Demand!  The event will remain open 6 months from the date of the live event.  The webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.


Topic's for this years event included: 

  • Digitization, Digitalization & Digital Transformation:
    • Digital transformation has affected the clinical phase of the drug development journey by improving efficiencies, patient engagement and allowing for utilization of computational and other technologies. This track will address topics such as data collection, flow, storage and analytics and digital transformation case studies in clinical phase and the potential for digital transformation in preclinical phase.  Preclinical in vivo phase is in initial stages of engaging with digitization and digitalization, which presents opportunities for learning from clinical colleagues how to implement these technologies.
  • Non-Traditional In Vivo & In Vitro Models:
    • This track will address the clinical relevance and translational challenges in drug development with in vivo large animal models (dogs, pigs, cats) and in vitro organ on the chip models as potential solutions. Sessions will address the possibilities and challenges of performing preclinical trials with dogs and cats, discuss the need for more clinically relevant preclinical in vivo and in vitro models, and current reality and capabilities of organ on the chip technologies.
       

Laboratory Animal Sciences 2019 brought together scientists from basics sciences to bioinformatics, clinicians  veterinary technicians, veterinarians, technical support staff and compliance personnel from around the world to learn about recent advances and challenges within preclinical phases of drug development.
