JRC Summer School on Non-Animal Approaches in Science

Tue, 21 May 2019, 12:00 - Fri, 24 May 2019, 14:00, European Commission Joint Research Centre, Ispra (Varese), Italy

The JRC, which runs the EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing, is organising a JRC Summer School on Non-Animal Approaches in Science: Challenges and Future Directions, from 21 to 24 May 2019 at the JRC site in Ispra (Italy).

The aim of the JRC Summer School is to share knowledge and experience on the latest non-animal approaches used in research and testing including in vitro methods and computational modelling.

It is tailored for post-graduate students (PhD/Master) and young scientists, active in fields related to toxicology, biomedical research, alternative methods, exposure science, or risk assessment. A visit to the EURL ECVAM laboratory is also planned. Participants will be asked to present a poster describing their own studies, interests or work area related to the topics of the Summer School.

The Summer School is free of charge. The maximum number of participants is 120.

Applications are now open until 15 January 2019.
