Animals are out, and human-focused methods are in!
The Physicians Committee has an exciting new program that engages the next generation of scientists and promotes human-relevant methods in research. Early-Career Researchers Advancing 21st Century Science, or ERA21, works with students and emerging scientists and connects them to the benefits of human-relevant research. The ERA21 program uses a multifaceted approach to encourage research that employs human-relevant models, rather than animals, in order to advance biomedical and translational research.
The ERA21 team wants to bring human-based research to your institution! We can help organize an educational speaker series or host a symposium on human-based research.
For inquiries or to add to our list of resources please contact, Janine McCarthy at jmccarthy [at] pcrm.org.
Apply Now for the 2022 Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science
The Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science aims to speed up progress in ethical and effective scientific research by supporting a new generation of scientists who utilize and champion nonanimal methods for research and testing. To address the diverse needs of students and early-career researchers, the Summer School will offer two tracks – toxicology and biomedical science, featuring specific applications of current innovative non-animal methods. The program consists of scientific talks, career development workshops, poster presentations, laboratory tours and demonstrations, networking opportunities, and more.
Applications for in-person attendance to the 2022 Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science are now being accepted. For more information visit www.InnovativeScience2022.org
The ERA21 program is pleased to present the ERA21 Travel Award to attend the Summer School on Innovative Approaches in Science.
