Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association

The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (SGV) is actively dedicated to the promotion of laboratory animal science, as well as the furthering of animal protection and ethical considerations in animal experiments. These aims shall be attained by organising education and the flow of information within the scientific community.

The Swiss Laboratory Animal Science Association (Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Versuchstierkunde SGV) was founded in 1987. We serve as intermediary between animal welfare and research for the benefit of humans and animals. We are a key partner for the authorities, scientists and the public. We are dedicated to promote the 3Rs (REPLACE, REDUCE, REFINE) and the animal welfare and ethical considerations in animal experimentation.

It is almost 2 years ago when the SGV has published the last newsletter in summer 2014. We had quite some changes during the past 2 years like e.g. a complete makeover of our logo and website, including for the first time also animal pictures.
