The fourth GW4 3Rs Symposium, jointly hosted by the NC3Rs (National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research), is to be held at the University of Bath on 14 September 2022, 10:00-16:00.

This event is free to attend and aimed at all those engaged in research (both animal research and those working with potential replacement technologies) as well as animal technicians.

Showcasing the latest 3Rs research and welfare initiatives taking place across GW4 and beyond, the event will also highlight resources and funding opportunities available from the NC3Rs.

The GW4 Alliance has kindly agreed to pay for buses for those travelling from Bristol, Cardiff and Exeter (please see registration form for details).
