CAAT’s Beyond Classical Refinement Program is hosting a webinar featuring four former winners of the CAAT Refinement Award, a prize given for outstanding research that has the potential to significantly improve the lives of laboratory animals and/or reduce the number of animals used.
Becca Franks (New York University), Brianna Gaskill (Novartis), Judith de Haan (Utrecht University) and Cathy Schuppli (University of British Columbia) will talk about what they have been up to since they received the CAAT Refinement Award, and where their careers have taken them. They will give short presentations on their recent or ongoing research activities.
We will then engage in a conversation on the role of contemporary refinement research and on how barriers to its implementation in practice can be overcome. We will also explore ideas on where the field should be heading.
