PETA Science Consortium International e.V. gives essential training opportunities to scientists to ensure that they have the skills needed to pursue careers in animal-free science. Thanks to these awards, an undergraduate student at North Carolina Central University attended the 2022 Society of Toxicology (SOT) conference. The award to attend the SOT conference was established to support the education and training of students attending a historically Black college or university who are interested in non-animal approaches to toxicology testing. Also in 2022, three early-career scientists attended a summer school on innovative, non-animal test methods to learn about ways non-animal tests can be used instead of testing on animals. And two scientists participated in a workshop in the Netherlands in 2022 that provided hands-on training on the latest non-animal test methods in genetic toxicology.
