Webinar: Less traditional research animals

The Swedish 3Rs Center welcomes you to a webinar about less traditional research animals on August 18th.

Welcome to this webinar about less traditional research animals. We have invited five speakers who use different types of animals that might not be seen as traditional when it comes to research. The speakers will talk about potential possibilities and challenges associated with the use of less traditional animals from a 3Rs perspective, as well as how the animals needs can be met.
