3Rs Prize

Since December 2014 the ISTT has had a 3Rs committee whose role it is to support and promote implementation of the 3R’s, both when developing and applying transgenic technologies. We believe that across our international organisation there are now a number of individuals making exceptional efforts to replace (partially or absolutely), reduce and/or refine their use of animals.

It is therefore our great pleasure to announce that for the first time at TT2017 the 3Rs committee/ISTT will be offering a 3Rs Prize sponsored by the National Centre for the 3Rs. To enter applicants are requested to check the box indicating that they would like to be considered for the 3Rs prize when submitting their abstract.

The winner will be invited to present his or her work during Session 6: Ethics & the 3R’s and receive a monetary award up to the value of £250.
