The Netherlands National Committee for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes (NCad) was appointed for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes and for education.
The NCad achieves visible improvements that are specifically related to the Replacement, Reduction and Refinement (3Rs) of animal procedures and to the associated ethical review in scientific research (including applied scientific research) and teaching. Its goal, in doing so, is to minimize laboratory animal use at both national and international level.
From the 20th to the 24th of August, the 10th World Congress on alternatives and animal use in the Life Sciences (#WC10) takes place in Seattle, USA. The NCad attends this Congress and will present 7 scientific posters. In addition we will present published advisory reports by the NCad during two presentations. The Congress is a scientific meeting with emphasis on the latest technologies for Replacement, Reduction and Refinement of laboratory animal use and innovations in approaches to ethics, animal welfare and public policy. The theme for this Congress is “The Three Rs in Action.”
