In the field of biomedical research, animals are bred for experimental studies to advance scientific knowledge, develop new treatments, and test the safety and efficacy of medical interventions.

The issue of surplus animals in breeding of laboratory animals pertains to the challenge of producing more animals than are required for scientific research purposes. This surplus creates ethical and practical concerns.

This webinar is about to exchange experiences in strategies and programs to respect the responsibility to reduce and refine the surplus in breeding.
