Tissue engineering the arterial wall to improve in vitro thrombosis models: An alternative to current in vivo thrombosis studies?
Thursday 7 May, 7.20-7.40pm (BST)
NC3Rs/British Heart Foundation-funded PhD student Jacob Ranjbar from Keele University will be speaking about his research on using tissue-engineered arterial constructs to reduce and replace mice used in platelet research. This talk is part of the Virtual Blood and Bone Marrow Seminar Series, organised by Harvard Medical School's Dr Kellie Machlus.
E-learning modules on anaesthesia, euthanasia and pain and distress assessment – how can they help in the delivery of training?
Wednesday 13 May, 11-11:45am (BST)
This webinar will focus on FLAIRE Learning's three new NC3Rs-funded modules on advanced anaesthesia, as well as further resources and the benefits of e-learning for laboratory animal professionals. Professor Paul Flecknell (FLAIRE Learning) will speak from 11am to 11.30am, after which he will take questions. The target audience is anyone involved in training and laboratory animal anaesthesia.
This online conference will focus on recent advances and challenges within preclinical phases of drug development. This year’s theme is How reliable are your animal experiments? Increasing the probability of success and reproducibility. Dr Nathalie Percie du Sert from the NC3Rs will be speaking at 7pm (BST) about the revised ARRIVE guidelines, including the new ARRIVE Essential 10.
This webinar will introduce systematic reviews and highlight how they can improve the reliability, reporting quality and 3Rs impact of animal research. The target audience is in vivo researchers or students with limited or no experience of systematic reviews. It will be presented by Dr Emily Sena from the CAMARADES group at the University of Edinburgh and Dr Nathalie Percie du Sert from the NC3Rs.
