  • 7th Annual 3Rs Symposium: Practical Solutions and Success Stories
    June 4-5, 2020
    USDA National Agricultural Library
    Beltsville, Maryland
    The 7th Annual 3Rs symposium, co-hosted by the USDA Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC), NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW), the Johns Hopkins Department of Molecular and Comparative Pathobiology, and the Johns Hopkins Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT), will be held June 4-5, 2020 in Beltsville, Maryland. The goal of this year’s symposium is to bring together experts in replacement, reduction, and refinement of animal experimentation to exchange information with scientists, IACUC members, veterinarians, and animal care technicians about practical solutions and recent success stories to reduce the use of animals in research and improve their welfare.
    The format includes 1.5 days of lectures and panel discussions with interactive breakout sessions in the afternoon on day two. These lectures give participants a strong foundation in the relevant research underlying breakthroughs in the 3Rs, while the breakout sessions allow participants to receive feedback specific to their own facilities from experts and colleagues. A half-day tour of labs and research centers at the Agricultural Research Service is planned for June 3, 2019 as an optional pre-symposium event.

  • Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science
