"The emotional cost of caring: Impact on Animal Welfare", London, UK
This workshop organised by Jordi Tremola & Angela Kerton focuses on the working practices and challenges faced by laboratory care professionals and researchers.

It is hoped that the workshop will make a positive difference to individuals, whether that be managing their own mental health and well-being or supporting animal welfare.
