The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (SGV) is actively dedicated to the promotion of laboratory animal science, as well as the furthering of animal protection and ethical considerations in animal experiments. These aims shall be attained by organising education and the flow of information within the scientific community.
Since 1987 we serve as an intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals. We are a key partner for the authorities, scientists and the public. Our dedication is to promote the 3Rs (REPLACE, REDUCE, REFINE) and the animal welfare and ethical considerations in animal experimentation.
Prof Würbel gives us an interview about propriately designed and analysed animal experiments that are robust and reproducible, and truly add to the knowledge base and therefore reduces the use of animals.
Prof Patricja Nowak-Sliwinska points out accelerating the development and use of models and tools, based on the latest science and technologies, can improve important scientific questions without the use of animals and therefore replace them.
Prof Jane Hurst from the University of Liverpool gives us a interisting interview with tunneling of mice as a good example for refinement.
