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. Please see the Summer School website for further information.
