On November 29-30th at Laboratorio Analisi e Ricerca di Fisiopatologia in Genoa the Fourth Theoretical-Pratical course "Give a meaning to substitutive methods to animal testing" will be held.
The course provides an update for training theoretical-practice of future researchers and those who do already research activity, to increase the use of alternative methods and the possibility of setting up new models scientifically valid, to replace those on animals.
The course is open for different professional profiles, for a total of 24 participants.
