Primate Welfare Meeting
The NC3Rs Primate Welfare Meeting brings together researchers, veterinarians, animal care persons and facility managers with a common interest in the welfare of laboratory-housed non-human primates. The broad aims of the meeting are to:
Refinements to scientific techniques, changes in primate housing systems, new methods for welfare assessment, and training of animals to co-operate with scientific and husbandry procedures all have implications for staff training. The Primate Welfare Meeting is a unique opportunity for exchange of information on issues such as these. In addition to the scientific programme, the meeting plays an important role in bringing together staff with different job roles to share their experiences with primate care and use generally.
This meeting is free and open to laboratory personnel working directly with non-human primates.
