Animal research outreach by EARA
EARA, with the support of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies and Society for Neuroscience, are holding a series of openness events with the aim of promoting the benefits of open communication about animal research. The discussions would be aimed at researchers and staff who are either directly or indirectly involved in animal research and are currently hesitant to speak out in the media, or participate in public engagement activities. This will not be a debate about the ethics of animal experimentation. Speakers: Kirk Leech, Executive Director, EARA, UK; Marta Kuczeriska, Mossakowski Medical Research Institute, PL; Krzystof Wasowicz, University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn, PL; Paweł Boguszewski, Nencki Institute of Experimental Biology, PL.
