In December 2017, FDA launched its Predictive Toxicology Roadmap, a six-part framework for integrating predictive toxicology methods into safety and risk assessments. Among other recommendations, the Roadmap calls for FDA research to identify data gaps and to support intramural and extramural research to ensure that the most promising technologies are developed, validated, and integrated into regulatory review, if applicable.
FDA held its initial public hearing on the Roadmap, sponsored by FDA's cross-agency Toxicology Working Group, on September 12, 2018. More information about the Roadmap as well as the initial public hearing can be found on the following website: https://www.fda.gov/predictivetoxroadmap.
