Animals in Science: Pop Up Booth


In recent years, animal welfare awareness and the ethical issues surrounding animal testing have been brought to the front-lines of the science community. Technology has drastically improved research methods in the field of biological sciences, which is allowing researchers to re-evaluate the need for live-animal testing; it might no longer be needed.

We will be boothing outside of the MacMillan Building (on Main Mall, across from the Computer Science and diagonal to the Forestry building) from 11am-3pm on March 8th (Thursday) to showcase new resources and research technology spearheaded by LFS Professor Elisabeth Ormandy and her research team. Stop by our booth to learn more about the use of animals in research, how VR technology can replace traditional animal dissections, and other technology emerging in animal biology education.

By stopping by our booth and interacting with the display material, you will be entered into a draw to win a LUSH COSMETICS GIFT BASKET!
Like the UBC PAW Facebook Page and our Instagram (@ubcpaw) for extra entries!
The winner will be contacted via DM or email.

We will also be selling UBC PAW membership and tickets for the 2018 UBC Animal Welfare Conference.

When: March 8th, 11am-3pm
Where: Main Mall, we will be at a tent in front of the MacMillan Building.
