Education: to Broaden the Use
Education is a primary component of the Institute’s mission. Our goal is to improve and expedite the development, validation and use of in vitro methods through exchange of information and training. Our education programs are made possible by the generous support of our contributors, who share our goal.
With over 10 years of experience in developing and performing alternative testing methods, IIVS is uniquely positioned to train others in these techniques. Our programs are offered in several formats throughout the year including Technical and Training Workshops at our facility in Maryland and Webinars presented via the internet. Our Technical Workshops bring together assay users and scientific experts working in the field to evaluate methods, identify assay limitations and strengths, and to develop improvement strategies. Our hands-on laboratory Training Workshops provide a forum for teaching the use and application of in vitro alternative methods to animal testing. Our Webinars provide a broad range of topics in an accessible, web-based, format and are tailored for novice to expert audiences.
