Why this Summer School?
Non-animal approaches offer huge advantages for conducting human relevant research and testing, whether it be for studying disease mechanisms, developing new therapies or ensuring the safe use of chemicals.
Cutting-edge technologies including induced pluripotent stem cells, organ-on-chip, computational modelling and artificial intelligence are being exploited for world class science that benefits our society.
The JRC Summer School provides you with a unique opportunity to learn from experts in the field, share knowledge and experience with your peers, and build your professional network, all while having fun too!
What’s on offer for you?
Four days of a highly engaging and interactive programme including lectures by experts in several key fields, round tables for discussion on hot topics, and a debate session powered by you! There’ll also be plenty of opportunity to mingle and meet new people with interests like yours.
The scientific programme will focus on complex in vitro methods and computational modelling used in biomedical research and regulatory applications that will show you how results obtained from advanced non-animal models and methods can be applied in human medicine and toxicology testing.
Time is dedicated to exploring career development paths and the amazing opportunities that non-animal science can offer.
You are asked to present a poster describing your own project or area of study related to the topics of the Summer School and all poster abstracts will be published in a special issue of the ATLA journal.
Who can participate?
The JRC is looking for enthusiastic students or early-career scientists (max. 4 years after masters or PhD) with a strong interest in non-animal approaches working in relevant fields of research and application.
The maximum number of participants will be 120 with a capacity of a further 24 students to join online.
