Science Conference 2021

This inspiring event is a platform for you to share recently developed non-animal research and new approach methodologies, and for us to learn from each other in a dynamic multi-disciplinary environment. We will be exploring advances in in vitro research, new approaches in in silico research, thinking beyond animal-derived biomaterials and much more.

When: 14-15 December 2021
Where: Millennium Point, Birmingham, B4 7XG

This event is open to researchers currently applying animal replacement techniques in their work and scientists with an interest in using such techniques in the future and policy makers in this area.
