Elly Hol (UMC Utrecht): possibilities for neuroscience

Prof. dr. Elly Hol (neuroscientist) talks about the opportunities for conducting animal-free research in Utrecht. She explains why it is necessary to use animal models next to cell-based models, for example for her Alzheimer research.

Wim de Leeuw: Aim and activities of TPI Utrecht

TPI Utrecht facilitates the Utrecht infrastructure to stimulate the transition to animal-free innovation. There is a helpdesk, a group of ambassadors, and a 3Rs Stimulus Fund. A digital marketplace for exchange of tissues is being developed, and as well a hybrid centre for biomedical translation, where there will increasingly be place for animal-free techniques.

Glenn Embrechts (European Schoolnet)

Skills in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are becoming an increasingly important part of basic literacy in today's knowledge economy. European Schoolnet is at the forefront of the debate on how to attract more people to science and technology to address the future skills gap that Europe is facing. STEM is one of European Schoolnet's major thematic domains. We have been involved in more than 30 STEM education initiatives, financed through European Schoolnet's Ministry of Education members, industry partners, or by the European Union's funding programmes.

Katja Wolthers (Amsterdam UMC) - virus research in human models: let's show some guts!

To study viruses that make people sick, we often use laboratory animals. However, virus infections in animals are different than in humans. New 3D culture models or 'organoids', which look like human organs in a petri dish, offer a unique opportunity to investigate how viruses enter the human body and cause disease. Our research focuses on enteroviruses such as polio. Due to vaccination, polio is rare, but other enteroviruses are increasingly a threat to young children and patients with impaired immune defenses. There are no medications available, because knowledge about infections with enteroviruses is limited. In our research we use organoids to see how enteroviruses enter the human body and by which means you can prevent that, without the use of laboratory animals. With this project we want to show that our technique can replace the use of laboratory animals in virus research.
