The Johns Hopkins University Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing (CAAT) and the Animal Protection Commissioner of Berlin are inviting early career scientists for a two-day Online Workshop focusing on animal-free New Approach Methodologies (NAMs) in biomedical research. The program will include presentations and interactive sessions. Following the call for abstracts, up to ten early career scientists will be selected to present their own research involving NAMs. The program will also include a session with established scientists from academia, industry, government, and NGOs who will answer the participants’ questions and share advice and guidance on future careers in the field of non-animal methods. In another session, we will discuss topics such as how to tackle the ‘publish or perish’ trap, and where to find funding as well as ongoing training opportunities in NAMs.
The Workshop is free of charge. Please use the form below to apply as well as to submit your abstract (if you would like to present your research) and email it to Dr. Kathrin Herrmann at firstname.lastname@example.org. Deadline is November 7th, 2021. The form to apply can be found here: https://www.berlin.de/lb/tierschutz/alternativen-zu-tierversuchen/artikel.1129019.php
