Please provide review comments to Gretchen.e.Dean@pfizer.com and Michael.Wasko@pdslifesciences.com by August 12, 2019.
Feedback from FDA on Section 5 of the nSDRG - Data Conformance Issues
Read the feedback gathered by the nSDRG team, based on a questionnaire proposing the team's questions about the usefulness and effectiveness of this important section of the nsdrg. Each question and answer combination has been added to the SEND FAQ page - see the subsection section on nSDRG.
Nonclinical Topics Working Group Vision
A collaboration working to improve nonclinical assessments and regulatory science by identifying key needs and challenges in the field and then establishing an innovative framework for addressing them in a collaborative manner through limited term projects.
Our focus is on using informatics approaches and standards for delivering ideas and solutions to nonclinical data challenges. Annually, at the Computational Sciences Symposium (CSS), we present our progress and achievements and develop new projects that further the value of nonclinical data.
The Visualization of Histopathology Data project is pleased to be able to share with you a recent publication from the Society of Toxicologic Pathology (STP) Working Group. Sean Troth and Brian Knight, co-authors of the paper, are members of the project team and have included references to the Histopathology Visualisation project in the publication. Congratulations on this excellent effort.
