The 8th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences will take place on 21-25 August 2011 in Montreal, Canada, organised by the Canadian Council on Animal Care.
This year, the Dr Hadwen Trust will fund medical-research projects in areas such as epilepsy, bone disease in childhood leukaemia, brain cell imaging, nanotoxicity testing and abdominal pain studies.
Scientists are increasingly interested in using and developing techniques to advance medical research without the use of animals, according to the Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research (DHT).
The Dr Hadwen Trust is inviting grant applications for proposals to develop, validate or implement non-animal methods that contribute to the replacement of animal experiments in medical research.
The Dr Hadwen Trust for Humane Research has called for an 'alternatives revolution' to speed up the development of research techniques to replace animals in medical research and testing.
