Welcome to the website of the 10th Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences. The congress will take place at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, Washington, USA on August 20-24, 2017. We will periodically update this website with important information – so stay tuned!
We are pleased to invite you to the 10th World Congress on Alternatives and Animals in the Life Sciences (WC10), which will be held on 20-24 August 2017 in Seattle, Washington, USA. The theme for this Congress is “The Three Rs in Action.”
WC10 promises to be a cutting edge scientific meeting with emphasis on the latest technologies for reduction and replacement of animals and innovations in approaches to ethics, animal welfare and public policy. Its placement in Seattle offers a broader reach to countries in Asia that are strengthening their focus on the Three Rs. The occurrence of the 10th in a series of World Congresses in the area of Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences is a milestone and correlates with the 10th anniversary of the National Research Council report on Toxicity Testing in the 21st Century – A Vision and a Strategy – a perfect occasion to take stock on our progress.
We look forward to seeing you in Seattle in 2017!
