Animal Free Research UK Summer School

Animal Free Research UK Summer School

Animal Free Research UK Summer School

In 2018 we extended our Summer Student Programme by launching our Summer School – a three-day residential jam-packed with career-boosting and inspirational workshops to provide early career scientists with the additional skills to help them develop their future careers.

I think the Summer Student Programme is the best opportunity to network with other people and find out about their research. It’s great to see how people are passionate about animal free research and it’s good to see that everyone is moving towards replacing animals with humanised models, which is a close representation of the actual human diseases.

– Foram Dave, Summer Student 2018

Our unique opportunities for Summer Students at the Summer School include:

  • Meeting animal free scientists
  • Visiting a working animal free laboratory
  • Learning how to discuss their research with scientists and the public
  • Discovering the various career paths open to them
  • Coaching on how to achieve their chosen career goals

I had the greatest pleasure attending the first Animal Free Research UK Summer School, and meeting like-minded individuals, both scientists and supporters!

I had the opportunity to learn from workshops on communicating science through different platforms, as well as presenting my project poster. I definitely enjoyed the career advice and the amazing company of the other students across the country implementing animal free research! I cannot wait for the next networking event!

– Jowi Guillen, Summer Student 2018

The students also bring a poster presentation of their cutting-edge replacement research to display at a celebratory event attended by their supervisors, other animal free researchers and some of our brilliant supporters – which is the perfect opportunity to apply the networking and communication skills they will develop during the Summer School.

The Summer School has been really really useful for the students to develop their career skills. It’s not an experience that they get as part of their undergraduate degree, where they only interact with people from their course. Coming to an event like this, they see the much bigger world of research.

– Dr Nicholas Peake, Summer Student Supervisor 2017 & 2018

Supporting our scientists of the future to develop their career entirely without animal experimentation and therefore make real breakthroughs in medical research will create long-lasting change for both people and animals.
