12th FELASA and 12th SECAL joint congress entitled: ‘Animal Research: Better Science from Fewer Animals’ to be held 10-13 June 2013 in Barcelona, Spain. The venue of the Congress is the Barcelona's International Convention Center (CCIB) located on Barcelona seafront.
Symposium to mark the launch of the IDMIT project.
On May, 24th 2013, we organize a symposium to mark the launch of IDMIT. The objective of the symposium is to review the critical challenges and perspectives in preclinical research and the ensuing translation of innovation from bench to clinical practice. Distinguished international speakers will share their views and vision on the rational and ethical use of animal models in combination with innovative technologies to better understand the pathogenesis of infections so as to develop and test new vaccines and treatments.

This workshop is an excellent opportunity for animal modellers and those who use data from animal studies to gain and share information on appropriate use of animals for efficacy and safety assessment in vaccine development. Representatives from all TRANSVAC members that use animal models are highly encouraged to attend. Attendance is free of charge, but for organisational purposes registration is required. Registration can be done by sending an e-mail to: email@example.com.
Please feel free to pass this message on to and invite your colleagues working with animal models in vaccine development.
