A NSW DPIRD and Animal Research Review Panel initiative

2024 Webinar series

The Animal Research Review Panel (ARRP), in partnership with NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI), is hosting three webinars in 2024 to help educate and raise awareness of the welfare of animals used in research.

Webinar 1 – ‘Advances and Institutional Approaches in Alternatives to Animal Testing’

28 May 2024

The introduction to the Australian Code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes (the Australian Code) promotes the ethical, humane and responsible care and use of animals for scientific purposes. A governing principle of the Code is that ‘respect for animals must underpin all decisions and actions involving the care and use of animals for scientific purposes’ (section 1.1). One way this is achieved is through applying the 3Rs:

  • Replacement of animals with other methods
  • Reduction in the number of animals used
  • Refinement of techniques to minimise the adverse impact on animals

Webinar presenters:

  • Dr Natalie Anderson from Animal Free Science Advocacy
  • Dr Josephine Joya from the University of NSW
  • Professor Wojciech Chrzanowski from the University of Sydney
