Lush Prize 2014- Is One R the new Three Rs?

…a one day conference on Friday 14th November 2014 at RIBA in London W1B 1AD

The impact of 21st century toxicology ideas on replacing animal testing

Does the consensus building around 21st Century Toxicology – a wholly replacement model – mean that the 3Rs framework is an idea that has had its day? Or does a significant pathway-based understanding remain so distant, that 3Rs will retain a relevance for many years to come?

Attendees are invited to hear from expert speakers on the international progress and challenges in replacing animal testing.

•Dr. Thomas Hartung, Centre for Alternatives to Animal Testing, John Hopkins University

•Prof. Lisbeth Knudsen – Professor of Toxicology; University of Copenhagen.
