First in human studies represents a critical milestone in drug development – the first opportunity to assess the human potential of the medicine. It is also the stage of development during which we are most dependent on pre-clinical data to inform clinical decisions, such as the doses to be given and safety parameters to be measured. Reliability of data is vital to the drug development process and the protection of volunteers and patients in that process. There are multiple aspects to reliability of data. In this workshop we focused on one aspect in particular - reproducibility.
