Welcome to the Substances Project




The purpose of the Drug Model Project Group is to contribute and help progress specific deliverables within the Drug Project.

Project group members are requested to:

  • Review documents and provide comments in the format directed by the authors. Complete assigned tasks to due date, incomplete tasks are located in the "Incomplete tasks from all meetings" section of the Meeting Information - Substance Hierarchy page. If you are assigned a task that cannot be completed by the due date, please add a comment so that a new due date can be negotiated.
  • Review the topics on the Discussions page and respond as appropriate.
  • Raise general questions, comments, and corrections should be submitted via the "Comments" section at the bottom of the relevant page

    This is a landing page to explain what this project is about. Most of the specific information about the group is kept in another Confluence space: Substance Project.

    The Substances Project has a project team, which is a closed group. It does not have a formal Project Group.
