IIVS is pleased to announce that Allison Hilberer will participate in the OECD Test Guidelines Programme Expert Groups (OECD TG EG) for eye and skin irritation, phototoxicity and skin sensitization. Allison is a Toxicologist II and Study Director at IIVS where she oversees the conduct of in vitro studies in these areas. Allison has also been involved in many validation programs and participated in efforts to draft and revise OECD Test Guidelines.
Allison has been nominated to these work groups by ICAPO (International Council on Animal Protection in OECD Programs) — a major stakeholder group recognized by the OECD to participate in the development and implementation of test guidelines, and to ensure compliance of the guidelines through the Mutual Acceptance of Data (MAD) policy.
We congratulate Allison on her appointment to this important position!
