On behalf of the Organizing committee I have the pleasure to welcome you to the 11th FELASA and 40th Scand-LAS joint meeting titled
‘New Paradigms in Laboratory Animal Science’
to be held 14-17 June 2010 in Helsinki, Finland. The venue of the meeting is Marina Congress Center, located at the seaside of downtown Helsinki.
The FELASA meeting, organized every third year, is the largest European laboratory animal science meeting, where almost thousand scientists and other professionals from all over the world will meet. The programme provides various topics of current interest, covering both scientific and practical aspects. Along with plenary presentations, oral presentations and posters are warmly welcomed. In addition to scientific sessions, workshops and round table discussions, with interactive participation, will be included into the program. A large exhibition, which allows you to get familiar with the most up-to-date equipment and technology, will be arranged. Last but not least, there will be nice social programme to entertain you and serve as a possibility to meet old and make acquaintance with new friends and colleagues.
In June, the weather in Finland is usually pleasant and the white nights with practically day-around sun make your stay unique. The city centre of Helsinki with market place, shops and restaurants are within short walking distance from the conference venue, providing you a glimpse on life style in Finland, the best kept secret of the Western world.
