As introduced in the 3R principle (Replace, Reduce, Refine) by Russell & Burch, alternatives to animal testing are of utmost interest and significance. However, besides the great progresses regarding in vitro toxicology screening and human-on-a-chip platforms, the importance and potential of in silico methods to contribute valuably to the reduction of lab animal usage are scarcely visible and unknown.
The diversity and range of applications of in
silico methods will be presented by experts during a seminar (17 August) with
subsequent networking possibilities. In addition to this event, it will follow an interactive workshop (18 August) to generate ideas for
bridging the communication gap and further the
implementation of the 3R.
