Inaugural lecture Francqui Chair

To date, the greatest efforts in 3R-alternatives have focused heavily on regulatory toxicity, a field in which great progress has been made, supporting a shift towards more humane animal experimentation strategies. However, alternative methods in basic and applied research, has so far received much less attention, with a heavy reliance on animal experimentation still the norm. This will be the focus of the upcoming IC-3Rs Symposium, which under the guidance of the Francqui laureate  prof dr Maurice Whelan, will spotlight/highlight innovative research examples and new developments that spearhead the way forward!
