Le SGV promeut la science des animaux de laboratoire, la protection de ces animaux et les considérations éthiques dans les expérimentations animales. Ces buts sont atteints grâce à l'organisation de cours de formation et par le transfert d'information auprès de la communauté scientifique.en plus

SGV: "Since 1987 an intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals"

The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde SGV) was founded in 1987. We serve as intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals. We are a key partner for the authorities, scientists and the public. We are dedicated to promote the 3Rs (REPLACE, REDUCE, REFINE) and the animal welfare and ethical considerations in animal experimentation.

We organize, support and offer:

  • A two-day scientific meeting.
  • A symposium at the annual meeting of the Life Sciences Switzerland (LS2).
  • We initiates and support different networks and working groups promoting the aims of the SGV.
  • Each year our society awards a prize to an outstanding contribution to the 3Rs and animal welfare in the field of laboratory animal science.
  • We give financial support granted to young researchers attending training courses or meetings and persons who will actively promote and implement the 3Rs.
  • The SGV also financially supports projects related to the goals of the SGV with the “SGV 25 years fund".

Publications:


The actual SGV Awardees

Reduce: Prof Hanno Würbel University of Berne Switzerland

Prof Würbel gives us an interview about propriately designed and analysed animal experiments that are robust and reproducible, and truly add to the knowledge base and therefore reduces the use of animals.

Replace: Prof Patrycja Novak-Sliwinska University of Geneva Switzerland

Prof Patricja Nowak-Sliwinska points out accelerating the development and use of models and tools, based on the latest science and technologies, can improve important scientific questions without the use of animals and therefore replace them.

Refine: Prof Jane Hurst University of Liverpool England

Prof Jane Hurst from the University of Liverpool gives us a interisting interview with tunneling of mice as a good example for refinement.
