Tech3R newsletter

Tech3Rs is a regular newsletter providing animal technicians with the latest news from the NC3Rs. Each issue features updates on recent advances in the 3Rs and highlights new resources, research and events that we think will be of interest to animal technicians. We are preparing French and German translations to be distributed in Switzerland (Italian versions will also be forthcoming).
