The Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science aims to speed up progress in ethical and effective scientific research by supporting a new generation of scientists who utilize and champion nonanimal methods for research and testing. To address the diverse needs of students and early-career researchers, the Summer School will offer two tracks – toxicology and biomedical science, featuring specific applications of current innovative non-animal methods. The program consists of scientific talks, career development workshops, poster presentations, laboratory tours and demonstrations, networking opportunities, and more. 

No conference fee will be charged. However, participants will need to cover the costs of their travel and accommodations.

The Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science is geared towards undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral and other trainees, as well as early-career professionals, typically within five years of completing their studies/training. 

 COVID-19 vaccination is mandatory for in person attendance.

This is the second Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science. Presentation slides and recordings from the 2020 Summer School available here.
