The scientific concept that a given complex living organism may work as a model for the study of another of a different species has been challenged by an increasing number of scientists, who have exposed the many pitfalls of using animal models for studying human biology and human diseases. Fortunately, a range of advanced, human-based research models have emerged as a powerful alternative for biomedical research.
With this in mind, Humane Society International (HSI) has teamed up with the D'Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR), and together are organizing a 2-day scientific meeting entitled “BioMed21: Emerging Technology Toward Human Pathway-Based Brain Research.” The meeting will take place at the IDOR campus in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on the 29th and 30th of May of 2017, and aims to foster strategic scientific dialogue regarding the need for an improved understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms at the root of human brain diseases, and opportunities for wider application of mini-brains, iPSCs and related human-based models in brain research. A draft agenda for this working meeting is attached for your consideration.
This will be an in-depth, invitation-only working meeting, open to leading Brazilian and international scientists, funding agencies and investors, policy makers, and individuals working in regulatory agencies to discuss the potentials of this technology as a viable, safe, powerful and cost-effective alternative to failing animal models.
