National Workshop on Alternatives to Animal Testing in Drug Discovery at JSS University | September 2-3,2013
Alternatives to animal testing in drug discovery are primarily based on biochemical assays, on experiments in cells that are carried out in vitro and on computational models and algorithms. These techniques are typically far more sophisticated and specific than traditional approaches to testing in whole animals, and many in vitro tests are capable of producing information about the biological effects of a test compound that are as accurate and in some cases more accurate than information collected from studies in whole animals. This workshop will impart necessary training on alternatives to animal testing for the teaching faculty /research scholars
