8:30 a.m.Overview and Session Objectives
8:40 a.m.Panelists:

 Replacement Strategies in Neuroscience Research: Focus on Spinal Cord Injury
  Professor of Cellular Neuroscience
  University of Glasgow

 Refinement and Reduction Strategies: Improving Models of Disease and Using Translational Approaches in Epilepsy and Parkinson’s Disease
  Reader in Neuropharmacology
  Aston University

 The Role of Systematic Reviews
  Associate Professor
  University of California, San Diego

 Future Considerations and Impact of 3Rs
  OI Pharma Partners
10:20 a.m.Discussion with Speakers and Participants:
  • How can the 3Rs best be used effectively to deliver advancements in neuroscience?
  • For what areas of neuroscience research is replacement a realistic long-term goal? How can this objective be most effectively pursued?
  • Are current regulations causing neuroscientists to move away from animal work or to use less strictly regulated models?
  • Are new regulations impeding the progress of neuro science, or leading to neuroscience advancements?
  • Is collaboration between sectors (industry/academia) effective and what is the impact of greater globalization of research?
  • Critical analysis of systematic reviews—do they play a role? If so, should there be a new approach to experimental design to facilitate such reviews?
11:00 a.m.BREAK
