Sue Gibbs joins the TPI Helpathon for Animal Free Innovation

Wednesday, 8 January

Animal-free innovation becomes easier when you do it together with patients, doctors, researchers, financiers, health professionals and policy makers. That is what happens during a helpathon. A helpathon is an innovation protocol: during two days an interdisciplinary team looks for animal-free ways to answer a research question.

'Within biomedical science, I have been developing alternatives to animal experiments for a long time. You're surprised what's possible when you have a good mindset'. - hDMT PI Sue Gibbs (Amsterdam UMC).
