The Scottish TSE Network (STN) will host their annual one-day international symposium at the Roslin Institute (Edinburgh, UK) on state of the art approaches to studying neurodegenerative diseases that are consistent with the 3R principles (replacement, refinement, reduction) of animals in research.
