IMI1 – Call 1 was launched on 30 April 2008 with the following topics:

  • Improve predictivity of immunogenicity
  • Non-genotoxic carcinogenesis
  • Expert systems for in silico toxicity prediction
  • Improved predictivity of non-clinical safety evaluation
  • Qualification of translational safety biomarkers
  • Strengthening the monitoring of benefit/risk
  • Islet cell research
  • Surrogate markers for vascular endpoints
  • Pain research
  • New tools for the development of novel therapies in psychiatric disorders
  • Neurodegenerative disorders
  • Understanding severe asthma
  • COPD patient reported outcomes
  • European medicines research training network
  • Safety sciences for medicines training programme
