Discovery Forum Series

CCS Discovery Forums are held virtually in a fire-side chat type environment. They bring together leaders from industry, academia, health agencies and nonprofit organizations to analyze, reflect and design solutions for the key barriers in biomedical sciences and related pressing affairs. Participants include private companies creating new technologies, animal protection groups, representatives of academia, policy experts, and public health professionals. The overarching goal is to execute collaborative, impactful efforts to support and or/draft policies and scientific agendas that will help change the face of medical research and drive sustainable health practices.

Inaugural Discovery Forum

On June 23, 2022, CCS kicked off its first Discovery Forum. The event was an opportunity to analyze the policy framework underlying the most transformative scientific innovations of the decade. Emphasis was placed on new inventions enabled by advances in regenerative medicine, biomedical engineering, machine learning, and nanotechnology. This included applications like Organ-on-a-Chip, 3D-Bioprinting, and Micro-Physiological Systems (MPS), all poised to transform the healthcare industry. Numerous ideas for the legislative agenda needed to drive these disruptive technologies forward were examined, alongside the status of existing thresholds and barriers.

December Discovery Forum

On December 1, 2022, CCS held its 2nd Discovery Forum, discussing the updates on human-relevant methods that can replace animal testing following the legislative approval of the FDA Modernization Act 2.0. Speakers from around the world in the science, tech, and academia field met to give their key takeaways on how to improve the drug development process. All panelists emphasized that collaboration and hosting these events are critical for awareness and a platform to show there is a better way with emerging human-relevant technologies and their applications.
