Aims
The main goal of this course is to develop critical thinking supporting the choice,creation, development, validation, and use of alternatives to animals in research
Content
This course will consist of five modules, all of which focus on a different aspect of research and innovation in animal-free methods. The course will include regulatory and communication aspects. During this course, you will focus on innovations in animal-free methods including advanced in vitro (cell culture) and in silico (computational) approaches. The course will highlight the unique advantages of human-derived cells, such as induced pluripotent stem cells, organoids and multi-organ-on-chip devices. You will discover and discuss core topics related to the transition to a more humane science with the help of ethics, statistics and philosophy experts. You will dive in critical data interpretation in order to enhance your understanding of science. A group of experts will teach you the methodology of systematic reviews of scientific studies.
