Fundamental biology in the 21st century: Innovative solutions and accelerating change

December 10, 2015 - Charles Darwin House, London

The morning of 10th December 2015 will comprise a workshop session focused on the cancer field. Research scientists will discuss and identify areas where novel animal replacement technologies are still urgently required in this field. Contributors to this closed session will discuss where (and why) animals continue to be used, and how increasing awareness of non-animal approaches and additional funding opportunities may help alleviate animal suffering and advance human disease knowledge.

The afternoon of the 10th December will be an open session dedicated to raising awareness of animal-replacement activities and the consequent challenges. The format will be a programme of presentations by invited speakers and a presentation of the main outcomes from the morning workshop session. The day will conclude with a keynote presentation and a drinks reception.

This event is open to scientists currently applying animal replacement techniques in their research, those with an interest in using such techniques and policy makers.

The event is free to attend.  Please note credit card details will be collected during registration.  A payment of £25 will be deducted after 10th December in the event of a no show.

The DHT reserves the right to reject applications to attend the Conference at its discretion.
