Science Conference

Our 2022 conference!

Across two days in Birmingham, we discussed our collective desire to benefit human health by pioneering, perfecting and transitioning to modern animal free medical research. We heard from the best in our field – from veterans and early career scientists alike.

Bringing researchers together for the first time since the pandemic reignited our collective energy for the new gold standard science. A future where human diseases are cured faster without animal suffering is, now, inevitable.

The Animal Free Research UK Conference returns this June!

Last year as the Omicron variant emerged, we took the decision to postpone  the Animal Free Research UK Conference in December  to prioritise the safety of our community.

We are now thrilled to announce the return of our Conference – Modernising Medical Research – in Birmingham on Tuesday 28th and Wednesday 29th June 2022.

Over the two days we have a fantastic range of dedicated and inspiring scientists who will be presenting their work on advancing in vitro research, in silico research, and thinking beyond animal-derived biomaterials and much more.

Professor Don Ingber

And you’ll have a ringside seat to history – the awarding of our first Animal Free Research UK Pioneer Medal for outstanding contribution to our science. The recipient of the award this year is Dr Donald Ingber – a world-class pioneer in many fields of biomedical research and innovation.

On Day Two we will be facilitating a day of roundtable conversations between scientists and stakeholders on modernising medical research and launching our new Community of Practice for scientists engaged in animal free research. Together, we will explore how to accelerate a phase in of animal free research and a phase out of animal research.
