Events

Two European Commission Reports, Holley et al (2016) and European Commission (2017), have reported that significant improvements in the communication of information on 3Rs resources and the development of alternatives are needed. One part of the solution to this challenge is to improve awareness of 3R conference and related scientific events. Therefore, this Events Calendar brings together relevant information on sector specific conferences, workshops, symposia and training (but not accredited training see ETPLAS for this). At present the events covered are international but with a large emphasis on European locations, with the calendar currently spanning from May 2018 to August 2020. As they become available, links to event websites and registration information are included.

Every effort has been made to find as many relevant 3R events as possible, but events are constantly being organised so we welcome any information on missing or up and coming activities.

To improve the effectiveness of the Events Calendar resource we ask for feedback on the following questions;

  1. Are there any gaps in the calendar in terms of, certain activity types, topics, locations, dates and access or cost?
  2. Are there any additional activities that you or your organisation could provide?
  3. Are there any additional activities that you think VetBioNet should organise?

Please send any feedback to michelle.hudson-shore@nottingham.ac.uk.

The Infection and Immunity Annual Symposium 2021: Emerging Zoonoses @ Online event (limited in-person places)

Zoonoses are diseases and infections naturally transmitted between people and vertebrate animals. There are three classes of zoonosis:

  • endemic zoonoses which are present in many places and affect many people and animals
  • epidemic zoonoses which are sporadic in temporal and spatial distribution
  • emerging and re-emerging zoonoses which are newly appearing in a population or have existed previously but are rapidly increasing in incidence or geographical range, such as Rift Valley fever, SARS, and the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus (MERS-CoV)

It is estimated that, globally, about one billion cases of illness and millions of death occur every year from zoonoses. Some 60% of emerging infectious diseases that are reported globally are zoonoses; over 30 new human pathogens have been detected in the last three decades, 75% of which have originated in animals.

Join the Infection and Immunity Research Network for this half-day event which will explore this topic, on a local and global scale, in more detail.

Contribution and application of the Zebrafish model to the “One Health” concept webinar @ Online event

The seventh EAAP Webinar titled Contribution and application of the Zebrafish model to the “One Health” concept” is organized in collaboration with the Horizon 2020 funded project VetBioNet – Veterinary Biocontained research facilities Network. 

The first presentation will be given by Christelle Langevin from “INRAE” (France) on “Zebrafish as an in vivo model for biomedical and animal health research”. David Perez Pascual from “Institut Pasteur” (France) will then talk about “Gnotobiotic zebrafish model for the study of host-microbiota interactions”. Finally, Vincenzo Torraca from the “London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine” (UK) will make a speech about “Zebrafish Infection: from pathogenesis to cell biology”.

EMBO workshop on Pathogen immunity and signaling @ Saint-Malo, France
Apr 4 – Apr 8 all-day
EMBO workshop on Pathogen immunity and signaling @ Saint-Malo, France

Infectious diseases are one of the most important threats to human health, as exemplified by the recent coronavirus pandemic. Understanding the biology of host responses to pathogens is paramount to the development of new treatment strategies. The goal of this workshop is to bring together experts working on different aspects of the immune system and its response to infectious microorganisms. This includes:

  • (i) pattern-recognition receptors that detect the presence of pathogens,
  • (ii) the role of ubiquitin in immune signalling, and
  • (iii) animal models, pathogenesis and cell-mediated immunity.

These are all not only essential for the clearance of pathogens, but are also interconnected and dependent on each other. However, opportunities for scientists working in these areas to interact are rare. This meeting will close this gap by providing a forum for presentation of new and unpublished results by both established experts and early career researchers, for discussion and knowledge transfer, and for the forging of new collaborations. The workshop will devote a session to the most recent developments in SARS-CoV-2 biology and Covid-19 pathogenesis.

FELASA 2022  congress @ Marseille, France

“FELASA and AFSTAL are glad to invite you to the 15th FELASA Congress, from 13 to 16 June 2022 in Marseille, France. Three years have passed since our last congress. After so many months spent working in difficult conditions, we are now even more excited about this great opportunity to meet up again and share ideas and knowledge about laboratory animal science. We have chosen Marseille as the perfect location for FELASA 2022 at the Mediterranean sea.  This time the host Association is AFSTAL, the French Association of Laboratory Animal Sciences. The motto of this FELASA Congress is COMMUNICATION. This central theme will lead through various content streams: communication between animals, between animals and humans, between fellow researchers, between trainers and trainees, between laboratory Animal Science specialists at all levels and the Society. This congress will give you the chance to learn new things,  refine your knowledge and to share your experience in all fields of laboratory animal sciences. At FELASA 2022 you can visit the largest commercial exhibition and enjoy the luxury of a face-to-face discussion with the most knowledgeable commercial representatives who will bring the latest updates in animal care products and research equipment.”
