The animal model : a challenge for scientists !

The annual FELASA conference ( Federation for Laboratory Animal Science Associations) begins today : it will address the animal (the validity of the model), its health, its similarities with humans and its future in research. The congress will allow participants to discuss and debate four days on the current situation and the changes that need to be done to reduce, replace and refine the use of laboratory animals.
