Global Interest Groups: Animal Alternatives

The mission of the Animal Alternatives in Environmental Science Interest Group is as follows:

  • Foster discussion of key technical challenges for the future of the 3Rs (reduction, refinement, and replacement of animal tests) in environmental science
  • Understand the state of the science in animal alternatives with respect to acute and chronic testing
  • Understand the landscape for future animal alternative needs
  • Develop the basis for collaborative progress by all stakeholders
  • Consider how animal alternatives in environmental science will impact risk assessment

Activities

The AAES Interest Group is a co-sponsor of the upcoming Focused Topic Meeting: High-Throughput Screening and Environmental Risk Assessment: State of the Science and Emerging Applications.  Meeting Information:  16-18 April, 2018, Durham, North Carolina.  Registration is open.  For more information see:  https://hts.setac.org/

Several members of the IG collaborated over a very useful focus article that was published in ET&C on animal alternatives that may be of interest.  The article is:  Alternative approaches to vertebrate ecotoxicity tests in the 21st century: A review of developments over the last 2 decades and current status “ (DOI: 10.1002/etc.3603).
