The Health Law, Policy & Ethics Project at Emory University School of Law and the Human Toxicology Project Consortium of the Humane Society of the United States co-sponsored a symposium on October 23, 2017, to showcase innovations using human-based in silico and in vitro models for drug and device discovery. The goal of the symposium was to introduce researchers and students to exciting new tools and possible future careers that will increase understanding of disease and improve the search for effective therapeutics, while reducing reliance on animal testing. The symposium concluded with a discussion between scientists and lawyers about the legal regulation of new biomedical research technologies.
