3Rs Prize Event

  • NC3Rs
Monday 12 March 2018 13:00 to 19:30
Central London

The NC3Rs will be holding its annual 3Rs Prize Event on Monday 12 March from 1pm in central London.

Sponsored by GlaxoSmithKline, the 3Rs Prize is awarded for an outstanding primary research paper reporting a significant impact on the 3Rs.

As the prize is now in its twelfth year, we will be showcasing some of the research we have supported. We have invited a selection of past winners to present their work and how it has further advanced the 3Rs since winning the award.

The presentations will take place after lunch, followed by an evening reception where we will announce the winner of the 2017 3Rs Prize. We are delighted that Sir Mark Walport will be joining us to present the award.

Further details can be found in the draft programme below.

You are welcome to attend the whole event or the afternoon and/or evening only – please select the relevant option on the registration form. The closing date for registration is Friday 23 February.
