Société suisse pour l'étude des animaux de laboratoire (SGV)

La Société suisse pour l'étude des animaux de laboratoire (SSEAL) s'investit activement pour la promotion de la science des animaux de laboratoire et de la protection de ces animaux ainsi que pour 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.

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.

SGV Newsletter May 2016

It is almost 2 years ago when the SGV has published the last newsletter in summer 2014. We had quite some changes during the past 2 years like e.g. a complete makeover of our logo and website, including for the first time also animal pictures.
