Webinar offered after: “The JRC’s EU Reference Laboratory for alternatives to animal testing (EURL ECVAM) has issued a Recommendation urging end-users and other stakeholders to recognize the scientific validity of non-animal-derived antibodies and to stop using animals for antibody development and production.”
– The European Commission’s Science and Knowledge Service
Webinar, Oct. 15, 2020: Application of animal-free antibodies. Dr Giulio Russo (Abcalis) will speak on the replacement of animal serum-derived secondary antibodies with animal-free multiclonal antibodies. Dr Charu Chandrasekera (Canadian Centre for Alternatives to Animal Methods) will provide an in-depth look at her experience replacing animal-derived affinity reagents in the laboratory.
We are seeking committed volunteers, with demonstrated desk research skills, with an understanding of medical research and terminology, strong writing skills, and analytical skills to carry out various research projects.
We are looking for a minimum of two volunteers to help us with the following:
1. Building a new case studies section for our website to help highlight how animals are used in research, testing and teaching in Canada. 2. Compiling a list of case studies of Canadian research utilizing ethical and modern methods without animals. 3. Compiling a list of non-animal-based methods that can be used to train vet students. 4. Other general volunteer work like fact-checking, reference checking and offering scientific advice.
Experience: You will have the ability to read scientific publications and transpose the key points into case studies targeted at a non-scientific audience. Ideally, you will hold a minimum of an undergraduate scientific qualification and/or employment in the medical or research industry.
If you are committed to advancing modern, ethical and effective medical research and replacing the use of animals in research, testing and teaching, volunteering at PNARS will enable you to directly contribute to progress in this area.
