  • NC3Rs
Friday 08 November 2019
London, UK

The NC3Rs Primate Welfare Meeting is a unique event for sharing best practice in the use and care of non-human primates (NHPs) internationally. Typically, this meeting covers the latest developments in NHP husbandry and training, the refinement of scientific procedures, advances in welfare assessment and other topics, with plenty of opportunities for networking with colleagues in NHP research, breeding and management.


The 2019 meeting will have a workshop format and be focused on harmonising welfare indicators for rhesus and cynomolgus macaques, and common marmosets. The programme will be available in August.


Poster abstract submission is now open. We encourage you to submit a poster relevant to NHP welfare and/or the 3Rs.

Please complete the poster abstract submission form and email this to events@nc3rs.org.uk no later than 5pm on Friday 30 August. Applicants will be informed of the outcome in September.


The Primate Welfare Meeting is open to laboratory personnel working directly with NHPs. Attendance is free but advanced registration is essential. You will need an NC3Rs website account to register. Please use your institutional email address when registering.

Registration closes on Friday 18 October.
