RoAR: The UCL Forum for Replacement of Animals in Research
We are delighted to announce RoAR (Replacement of Animals in Research) - the UCL forum for promoting innovative, cross-disciplinary technologies to replace animals in research, within the 3Rs initiatives at UCL.
• Serve as a platform for collaborations across diverse UCL groups, including Biosciences, Engineering and Computational Biology, for creative approaches to alternative technologies
• Foster relationships with NC3Rs, grant awarding bodies and UK Industry.
• Maintain awareness and highlight achievements, within the 3R UCL initiatives.
We will be hosting our first cross-disciplinary workshop for staff from across SLMS and BEAMS on Wednesday 12th October from 2pm - 5pm.
The afternoon will consist of a number of short presentations showcasing examples of where animals have been replaced in research. Attendees will then be split into four groups to discuss new challenges set by NC3Rs and UK Industry.
This forum is your chance to see the progress being made, exchange ideas with colleagues and help make real progress in the replacement of Animals in Research.
The event is free to attend and places are limited, so register today to ensure you don't miss you.
Please note the event is open to UCL staff and researchers from SLMS and BEAMS only, from post-doc upwards.
