EUSAAT Annual Congress - abstracts
The EUSAAT 2012 congress focussed on new approaches and methodologies — for example, disease models, non-animal tools for basic biomedical research, ‘-omics’ techniques and advanced 3D models.
Among the most important topics is the implementation of the new EU Directive 86/609, Directive 2010/63/EU for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes, since it will affect all European scientists working in the life sciences in academia, industry and government institutions.
Other sessions covered: Progress in 3Rs Research — EU FP6 and FP7 Projects, Chemicals — REACH and Animal Welfare, 7th Amendment of the EU Cosmetics Directive, Legal and Ethical Topics, 3Rs Progress in Other Sectors, Inhalation and Nanotoxicology, 3R goes 3D — Implementation of 3D Methods in Toxicity Testing, Free Communications, 21st Century Non-animal Tools for Basic and Biomedical Research and Good Cell Culture Practice.
The abstracts will be published in a future issue of FRAME’s scientific journal ATLA (Alternatives to Laboratory Animals). Meanwhile they are available here. (Click to reach the pdf).
