The conference entitled: “The European Regulatory Toxicology Conference: The Regulatory Acceptance of Alternatives to Animal Testing” is taking place at St Anne’s College, Oxford, UK on Tuesday 24 May 2016.
The conference will have specific focus on the regulatory acceptance of alternatives to animal testing. With the move in the EU Regulatory Environment to animal testing being the action of last resort, this is sure to be an informative event and an area of interest for everyone involved in chemicals, biocides or agrochemical registration.

Fiona Sewell (NC3R)
