Laboratory Animal Sciences Virtual Event Series 2021

This event is now apart of the Neuroscience Virtual Event Series.

Labroots is pleased to announce the 10th Annual Laboratory Animal Science Virtual Event Series which will take place on February 10, 2021. This is a premier online-only conference that will bring together scientists from basic sciences to bioinformatics, clinicians, veterinary technicians, veterinarians, technical support staff and compliance personnel from around the world to learn about recent advances and challenges in drug discovery and development.

The North American 3Rs Collaborative (NA3RsC) and New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research (NJABR) have planned a program to increase awareness and understanding of relevant 3Rs concepts (Refinement, Reduction, and Replacement). This year's theme is: From Theory to Practice, Tools & Considerations for Implementing the 3Rs.

Topics will include:

Preclinical Research

This track will cover tools and strategies available to implement the 3Rs for in vivo studies and measure success. You will hear from leaders in the field on a variety of topics including robust study design and refinements in animal handling and assessment.

Microphysiological Systems (MPS):

This track will provide an overview of available MPS technologies, considerations for using these technologies, and practical examples of application. MPS are emerging technologies (spheroids, organoids, and organs-on-chips) that hold potential to increase translation and possibly serve as replacement or reduction for some animal models.

Our virtual conference allows you to participate in a global setting with no travel or cost to you. The event will remain open for 2 years from the date of the live event, and the webinars will be available for unlimited on-demand viewing.  This virtual conference also offers increased reach for the global scientific community with a high degree of interaction through live-streaming video and chat sessions.

Like the 2020 conference, this event will be produced on our robust platform, allowing you to watch, learn and connect seamlessly across all desktop or mobile devices. Equipped with gamification and point system, you can now move around the entire event, earning points for a chance to win one of LabRoots' most popular T-shirts.

Call for Posters — Virtual poster sessions offer the opportunity to present data to a global audience via a PDF poster and video summary and discuss results with interested colleagues through email. Plan now to have your poster included in the 2021 Laboratory Animal Sciences Virtual Event. You can submit your abstract here, and submission is free.

RACE Continuing Educational Credits
The 2021 conference has been approved by the American Association of Veterinary State Boards for Continuing Education for veterinarians and veterinary technicians to offer RACE CE credits, and will also meet AALAS and CALAS continuing education criteria.
