A Comprehensive Guide to Toxicology in Nonclinical Drug Development, Second Edition, is a valuable reference designed to provide a complete understanding of all aspects of nonclinical toxicology in the development of small molecules and biologics. This updated edition has been reorganized and expanded to include important topics such as stem cells in nonclinical toxicology, inhalation and dermal toxicology, pitfalls in drug development, biomarkers in toxicology, and more.

Thoroughly updated to reflect the latest scientific advances and with increased coverage of international regulatory guidelines, this second edition is an essential and practical resource for all toxicologists involved in nonclinical testing in industry, academic, and regulatory settings.

  • Provides unique content that is not always covered together in one comprehensive resource, including chapters on stem cells, abuse liability, biomarkers, inhalation toxicology, biostatistics, and more
  • Updated with the latest international guidelines for nonclinical toxicology in both small and large molecules
  • Incorporates practical examples in order to illustrate day-to-day activities and the expectations associated with working in nonclinical toxicology

Dr. Faqi earned a diploma of specialization in Experimental Pharmacology from the University of Milan in Italy.

He was a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Clinical Pharmacology and Toxicology at the Free University of Berlin-Germany from 1996 till 1998. He worked as a Research Associate at Morehouse School of Medicine in Atlanta, Georgia and at Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Before joining MPI Research, Dr. Faqi was a Senior Scientist at Allergan Pharmaceuticals in Irvine, California and a Research Toxicologist at IIT Research Institute in Chicago, Illinois. He is a Diplomate of American Board of Toxicology (D.A.B.T.) and a Fellow of Academy of Toxicological Sciences (A.T.S.). Dr. Faqi is a member of the Editorial Board of Reproductive Toxicology Journal and ISRN Toxicology. He served as a Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC) Computational Toxicology at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) from September, 2009-September, 2010. He is also a member of Scientific Advisory Board of the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (AAQI).

Dr. Ali Faqi is ad-hoc scientific reviewer for the scientific journals (Regulatory Pharmacology and Toxicology, Toxicology Journal, System Biology in Reproductive Medicine, Pesticide Biochemistry and Physiology, PLoS ONE and Birth Defects Research Part B: Developmental & Reproductive Toxicology). He is a Visiting Professor at the University of Palermo, Italy. In 2009, Dr. Faqi was a guest speaker at King Fahd Medical Research Center in King Abdiaziz University, Jeddah (Saudi Arabia) where he lectured on Preclinical Toxicology.

He is a past chairman of the membership committee of the Teratology Society and a past President of Michigan Society of Toxicology. Currently, he is the chairman of the Education Committee of the Teratology Society (2012-2013) and the Vice President of Toxicologists of African Origin (2012-2013). He has published over 100 technical and scientific papers and authored and co-authored 7 book chapters.
