Summary The Institute of Medicine's Forum on Drug Discovery, Development, and Translation convened a workshop on Emerging Safety Science. A diverse group of experts from academia, industry, and government examined two broad approaches to improving drug safety: basic scientific approaches (genomics, metabolomics, pharmacogenomics, cell-based signaling, and standard toxicology) to better identify safety issues during development; and innovative techniques for collecting and analyzing postmarket data to identify safety signals more rapidly than is possible with traditional methodologies
