兽医病理学家 play a key role as team members contributing to drug discovery and safety. To ensure that the veterinary 路径ologist evaluating 你的 study has the proper qualifications, be sure to ask the following questions:
1. Does the 路径ologist follow The Society of Toxicologic 病理 (STP) 建议 to ensure preclinical data generation is compliant with the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Volume 21, 部分58 （良好实验室规范[GLP]）和 部分11 （电子记录/签名）？
