Applying the 3Rs in oncology research (Applying the 3Rs in oncology research)
Owner/Developer: National Center for the Replacement, Refinement & Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs)
24 September 2018
This workshop aims to encourage the transfer of 3Rs skills, tool and/or technologies within the cancer research field and to promote a new collaboration with Cancer Research UK where they will co-fund a number of awards made under our Skills and Knowledge Transfer scheme. This scheme facilitates the exchange of 3Rs models, tools and/or technologies between laboratories and institutions helping to ensure that barriers to change in practice, such as a lack of funding, skills or confidence, are addressed and advances in the 3Rs can be rapidly adopted by the scientific community.
