The 13th project Consortium Meeting took place as an online event on 18-19 October 2021
The 2-day event kicked off with a Hands-on DEMO of the eTRANSAFE system ‘ToxHub’ that is now progressing with great leaps through monthly releases. The aim of the session was to showcase the functionalities with regard to data retrieval, visualisation and interpretation to the close to 100 delegates joining the meeting and gather insights to advance towards the next steps in the development pipeline. The event continued with a status update delivered by members of the ten project work packages, and discussions on sustainability approaches.
The heart of eTRANSAFE is the aspiration to enhance translation from preclinical to clinical setting. The goal is to carry out a comprehensive analysis of correspondence and validity of animal data for human safety. With this purpose, a specific session was devoted to discussing this so-called Rosetta Stone concept and considerations related to clinical relevance. The meeting closed with SAB recommendations, preceded by sessions on predictive model building and on ongoing and prospective external collaborations.
We thank all the partners and SAB members for their contributions to this event. The consortium now has a clear path forward until the next meeting that will take place in early 2022!
