Satellite Onsite Workshop "Optimising the design and running of studies", February 28(1st edition) and March 2nd (2nd edition)
Istituto Zooprofilattico Sperimentale dell'Abruzzo e del Molise 'G. Caporale' (IZS-Teramo) and Fondazione Guido Bernardini (FGB) are organising a joint training event on alternative methods, structured into two main sessions:
- International Conference “The multifaced universe of alternative methods in the day-to-day experimental work”
- Satellite workshop “Optimising the design and running of studies”:
- 1st edition: February 28th, FGB Conference Center
- 2nd edition: March 2nd, IZS Conference Center
The one - day interactive workshop aims at providing researchers with a deeper understanding of experimental design concepts, in order to improve reliability and reproducibility of animal experiments, avoiding animal waste and complying with the 3Rs of animal research.

Derek J Fry OBE, MA, D Phil, BM BCh
Dr Fry was Chief Inspector of the UK Animal Scientific Procedures Inspectorate until his retirement in 2008 and is now a consultant on animal experimentation issues and experimental design, with an honorary post at the University of Manchester, UK. Before joining the Inspectorate he was a medical academic, teacher and research scientist. In the Inspectorate, as well as inspecting work at animal research establishments, he advised on proposals for animal experimentation projects, assessing them against ethical principles, for 18 years including a period when most UK establishments had no ethical review locally. His specialist interest was experimental design, and he was on the ECVAM working group on Reduction. On retiring he helped develop the FRAME experimental design courses which have now been held in several countries as well as the UK. He ran a workshop on experimental design at the 8th World Congress on Alternatives in Montreal, and has also run or contributed to workshops on experimental design and project assessment in UK and various countries in Europe, Asia and North America, and published on aspects of experimental design and how to teach it. He has been a regular speaker at UK Laboratory Animal Science Association meetings, is currently Convener of the FELASA working group on experimental design, and is a member of the ETPLAS working group which is producing assessment criteria for the learning outcomes of EC Modules 9 to 11.
