Speaker: Mr Elliot Lilley

Abstract: The UK National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research (NC3Rs; and World Health Organization (WHO) have formed a new partnership to review the animal testing requirements described in WHO guidance documents for biologics to identify opportunities for the integration of the 3Rs. The aim is to enable vaccines manufacturers and regulators to apply the latest non-animal testing approaches and strategies to support faster access to cheaper vaccines by the global communities who need them most urgently. This webinar will introduce the project, highlighting why it has been established its scope and how interested parties can get involved.
