3RCC Biostatistics Task Force

The 3RCC has set up a nationwide biostatistics task force to exchange and coordinate support for academic researchers at Swiss institutes of higher education in areas of experimental design, data analysis and reporting related to animal experimentation and/or alternatives to animal experimentation.

A first kickoff meeting took place on 3 June at the University of Bern. The task force aims to address some of the key problem areas in experimental design, statistical analysis and reporting of experimental animal research results. Furthermore, the task force is developing a strategy on how to best support researchers conducting animal experiments in Switzerland.
