Presentation: Validation and International Harmonization

Rodger D. Curren, Ph.D., is president of the Institute for In Vitro Sciences, Inc. After more than 10 years of specializing in genetic toxicology, he created an in vitro toxicology division in 1988, which is now incorporated as the nonprofit Institute for In Vitro Sciences, Inc. Since 1997, the Institute has provided educational and laboratory-based resources to industry, government, and animal welfare organizations, as well as the general public. Dr. Curren serves on many national and international committees and science advisory boards of organizations focused on the development, validation, and practical use of alternative methods to whole-animal testing.

Dr. Curren’s efforts in optimizing and promoting new alternative methods have earned him several honors in the in vitro field, including the Russell and Burch Award, the Bjorn Ekwall Memorial Award, and the William and Eleanor Cave Award for Outstanding Achievements in the Development, Validation and Advancement of Humane Alternatives for Product Testing.

Dr. Curren received his Bachelor of Science in biology from Purdue University, followed by an Master of Science from Ohio University, and a doctorate from the Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers University.
