The congress will also feature a large trade exhibition, showing recent updates in animal care materials and equipment; animal use and health programs; and research equipment; as well as opportunities to network with colleagues from around the UK and beyond.

Abstracts for Posters to be presented at the Annual Conference are requested. Submissions are invited particularly, but not exclusively, on topics related to the meeting. Posters that have been presented elsewhere will still be considered and will be eligible for the awards; only those covering work conforming to all legal and ethical requirements will be accepted. The LASA Annual Conference Poster prize will be awarded by Envigo this year. This prize is for the best poster which aligns science and technology with the 3Rs, inspiring scientists to readily adopt new approaches. The Envigo poster award includes registration fees and expenses to attend a second scientific meeting with the prize poster to disseminate this information and foster innovative thinking to a wider audience.
