IQ Microphysiological Systems Affiliate
An Affiliate of the International Consortium for Innovation and Quality in Drug Development
The IQ MPS Affiliate was established to provide a venue for appropriate cross-pharma collaboration and data sharing to facilitate the industry implementation and qualification of MPS models. The IQ MPS Affiliate issues Requests for Information and Requests for Proposals to solicit interest in collaborating on the characterization of microphysiological systems for use in drug development. Please see below for information on specific opportunities.
IQ MPS Gastrointestinal RFI
The IQ MPS Affiliate is pleased to announce the release of a Request for Information on "Gastrointestinal Microphysiological System Testing for Specific Contexts of Use in Drug Development." The IQ MPS Affiliate is interested in investigating the functional capabilities of gastrointestinal microphysiological systems and their ability to demonstrate key ADME endpoints and toxicological responses beyond that of traditional 2D cell culture models or 3D static culture models. Publication of this Request for Information (RFI) is the first step by the IQ MPS Affiliate to solicit interest in collaborating on the testing of gastrointestinal microphysiological systems (MPS) for specific contexts of use (e.g., pharmacology, drug metabolism, toxicology, etc.) in drug development.
Responses to the RFI are due [ENTER DATE]. Questions on the RFI will be accepted until [ENTER DATE]. Questions received will be anonymized and IQ MPS's responses will be made available to all respondents via our website.
