FRAME is an independent charity dedicated to promoting the 3Rs and the development of new techniques that will replace the need for laboratory animals in medical and scientific research, education, and testing. They are hosting a Symposium on 16 and 17 July 2019 at the University of Nottingham. They would like to invite PhD students, postdocs and researchers within 6 years of their PhD completion to enter abstracts of their works.
The aim of the event is to celebrate and showcase work being carried out by early career researchers (postdocs and PhD students) in the 3Rs area of ‘replacement’ techniques. FRAME would like to highlight and share research projects being carried out within universities which may not have been developed with the aim of being an ‘alternative’ to animals, but by their nature are helping to advance the development of replacement techniques. This might be for example cell culture or organoid projects, work with biomaterials, invertebrates species or computer programmes, and in many cases will be projects using human-based research models in areas where animals are currently being used.
- Abstract admission deadline: 31 May 2019
