CALAS/ACSAL Virtual Symposium 

2021 Annual CALAS/ACSAL Symposium will be held VIRTUALLY! This means you can access the Symposium where ever you are.

The virtual Symposium will include the same great features of years past including the Annual General Meeting, keynote presentations, sessions, awards presentations, networking receptions, and even a virtual trade show.

The opportunity to host the event virtually this year has allowed us to provide greater access to the Symposium and the ability to reach a broader geographical audience.

The Symposium will run for 4 half-days over the month of June.

CALAS/ACSAL Virtual Symposium is being held on

June 4, 7, 11 & 18, 2021

The scientific board of the program, Prof. René Tolba and PD Dr. Julia Steitz from the Institute of Laboratory Animal Science at University Hospital Aachen will give a brief introduction to the structure of the program and will be available to answer questions afterwards.

Our master program is a FELASA accredited and graduates will receive the FELASA certificate for Laboratory Animal Science (LAS) specialists (including EU functions A, B & D). The next course is going to start in September 2021 in Aachen, Germany.

Graduates of the M.Sc. Laboratory Animal Science are able to:

  • take on leading roles in laboratory animal science, animal housing facilities and animal welfare bodies
  • apply special knowledge, using the latest methodology and generate scientific data to the highest standards
  • independently plan, conduct, evaluate and improve animal experiments

This event is of great interest to anyone involved in laboratory animal studies and who is looking for a high level academic and practical education alongside his or her profession. The program is aimed at international scientists (e.g. B.Sc. in Biology), veterinarians and physicians who are striving for a state-of-the art education as well as practical training in consideration of EU Directive 2010/63/EU and the 3Rs.

When? Tuesday, April 27, 2021
