Seminar: Research methods to study the human brain

The Swedish 3Rs Center organises a full day's seminar about methods to study the human brain in health and disease. The seminar will take place in Gothenburg, January the 12th.

This seminar is intended for researchers and other stakeholders with an interest in neuroscience. It aims to share knowledge, inspire to new approaches and to discuss where and when animal-free research methods can be used and what data they cannot currently generate.

Warmly welcome to participate in the discussion whether you are working with animal models, alternatives, or both!

Program and location

09.30 Registration and Coffee
