The workshop, co-organised by the NC3Rs, SPS and Coventry University, aims to bring together researchers from academia, SMEs and the pharmaceutical industry to discuss how best to support and enable the use of human tissues in safety testing. The one-day workshop will be held in Coventry, UK on Wednesday 03 May 2017. The overall aims of the workshop are to:
The workshop is part of a wider NC3Rs initiative to improve the predictive capacity and relevance of research models to human safety testing, and to implement human tissue as a replacement for animal models.
The programme consists of presentations, posters, exhibitors and networking opportunities.
Researchers from academia and industry will speak in three sessions:
Confirmed speakers include:
The workshop will be chaired by Dr Rob Wallis, Safety Pharmacology Consultant.
There will be an opportunity to present a poster on relevant work highlighting the use of human tissues (donor tissues/organ or human stem-cell derived cultured cells), this includes work that may have been presented at previous SPS meeting. Please note, the space for posters is limited, so posters will be selected from submitted abstracts.

We will let you know if you have been successful by 19 April 2017.
We will be offering companies exhibitor space to facilitate greater awareness of the opportunities for accessing human tissue and for outsourcing human tissue-based safety testing. Exhibitor space will be limited, so we are asking potential exhibitors to complete and return the exhibitor abstract form. Completed forms should be submitted to email@example.com by 12 April 2017. We will let you know if you have been successful by 19 April 2017.
