We shall use nexus thinking to:

  • Build capacity across the sciences, social sciences and humanities for interdisciplinary approaches to laboratory animal research  through conferences, workshops, publications and online, connect different perspectives and generate shared understandings.
  • Co-produce new empirical research on the current challenges in animal research, working closely with our advisory committee, project partners and lay-members’ group to shape research questions, analysis and dissemination.
  • Create resources, events, and platforms for exchange between policy, practitioners and publics through high-quality communications, community-derived guidelines and training for specialists, and dynamic public engagement activities.
  • To appreciate that a framework is not only a map but also a list of obstacles. To be attentive to a fuller range of influences and powers acting on and shaping bodies within the nexus so we can collaboratively face emerging challenges for science and society.

For many, talking about animal research remains taboo. As a way of highlighting one of the roles that animal research plays, some have suggested labelling medicines as ‘tested on animals’. But is the act of labelling so simple? What choices could or should be made in framing the role of animals in medicine production? Join us in using an interactive labelling session as a way of opening a wider discussion around animal research. All views welcome!

The Mouse Exchange

Where do lab mice come from? Where do they end up? Joins us for crafting felt mice to exchange or take home. You can also explore the history, practices, and ideas of care involved in making laboratory mice. But don't worry - if you would like to sew a mouse but are less sure about discussing laboratory animal research origins that is absolutely fine!
