Mathematicians sought to help reduce use of animals in research

Researchers are looking to use maths as a means of reducing or replacing the use of animals in research, as a forthcoming academic event demonstrates.
 
The NC3Rs (National Centre for the Replacement, Refinement and Reduction of Animals in Research) is organising a workshop to connect mathematicians with biologists. Mathematical modelling is an important tool for solving biological questions and increasingly its application is providing new ways of reducing the use of animals in research and development.
 
The workshop, which takes place on 15-18 April 2013 in London, will examine four biological problems chosen from those that have been submitted to the group. Mathematicians will be able to register for the event from 1 February 2013.
 
Further details on the workshop, which has been organised in partnership with the EPSRC-funded Mathematics in Medicine study group, are available on the NC3Rs website. Examples of previous problems undertaken can be found on the Mathematics in Medicine website.
