Description

The meeting has three major aims:
1) to reduce the number of animals used in this field by highlighting the benefits and drawbacks of the current models,
2) to identify specific research needs that should be supported and developed in the future, and
3) to provide funding agencies with a balanced published record of the use of these models, for more effective assessment of future applications for support.
