Judith van Luijk, PhD student at Radboud University Medical Center, recently submitted her PhD thesis entitled: “The Next Steps Towards Responsible Animal-based Research”. The thesis concerns research into the effectiveness of the 3Rs and systematic reviews (SRs) of animal studies, and what SRs can contribute to animal-based research and what actions are needed.
This work contributes to reducing waste in animal research and encourage evidence-based research in laboratory animal science.
The thesis has been approved for public defence which will take place on May 24th at 10.30 AM in Nijmegen (Geert Grooteplein Noord 21, The Netherlands). Everyone are welcome to attend the public ceremony. More information available here.
We wish Judith good luck in defending her thesis!
