Summer School 2020: Innovative Science Without Animals
Who can attend?
In response to a growing need to be conversant in innovative approaches in toxicology and biomedical sciences, this Summer School will share knowledge and experience with a new generation of scientists on research and testing methods. The program will highlight modern alternatives to the use of animals—including in vitro and computational modeling—in toxicology and biomedical sciences. The state of scientific research will be explored through lectures and discussion. Hosts include the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and the European Commission Joint Research Centre.
This Summer School is geared towards students and early-career scientists who are interested in working with non-animal approaches and their application in various fields such as toxicology and biomedical science. Learn more about the Summer School online, including how to apply, program information, confirmed speakers, travel information, and award information. There is no registration fee, but participants will need to cover the costs of their travel, accommodation, and daily subsistence.
The Summer School will be separated into two tracks: toxicology and biomedical science. In general, the toxicology track is designed for post-graduate students and early-career scientists and the biomedical science track may be of interest for undergraduate students through early-career scientists. The program will combine joint and track-specific lectures from experts in the field of toxicology and biomedical science with interactive sessions to encourage discussion and facilitate networking among participants.
