The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is accepting applications for its Summer Immersion on Innovative Approaches in Science, to be held May 30-June 1 in Washington DC. This workshop is designed to educate the next generation of scientists committed to advancing science ethically using nonanimal methods for research and testing. The program provides an overview of in vitro, in silico, and in chemico approaches and their many applications in basic, translational, and regulatory science to replace animals. Attendees will participate in scientific talks, career development workshops, poster presentations, technology demonstrations, case studies, networking opportunities, and more. Steering committee members include ICCVAM members Warren Casey, National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences; and Suzanne Fitzpatrick, U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
The Summer Immersion welcomes undergraduate and graduate students, post-docs and early-career scientists interested or engaged in academic, industry, or government research in biomedical sciences.
