ICAAE logoIn continuing our dedication to a future generation of compassionate scientists who refuse to use animals in research, NEAVS is again offering two registration grants for the Second International Conference of Alternatives to Animal Experimentation, May 8-9 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The $500 grants, which are available to doctoral and post-doc students from any country pursuing a career in the field of alternatives to animal experimentation, will cover the conference fee. The remaining amount will go toward traveling and accommodation expenses.

The conference will cover the 3Rs policy on animal use in research, and highlight the replacement of animal models with suitable and ethical alternatives.

Grant applications will be accepted until March 15, 2015. Applicants must send a CV, motivation letter, and student certification to Winners will be announced March 28, 2015 via email.

The conference program will include 15 lectures from national and international speakers including keynote speeches from inventor, neurotechnologist, and Cambridge Declaration on Consciousness author Phillip Low, PhD, and former chair of the U.K. National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs), toxicologist Ian Kimber, PhD.
