The Consequences of Sex Bias in Preclinical Research

Webinar overview

For mouse-based research investigating new cures for human diseases, one sex is far too often selected over the other. This sometimes happens for sound scientific reasons, but omitting sex as a biological variable has several consequences. Single-sex studies can lead to skewed research, translatability issues, flawed conclusions, and raise concerns regarding ethical practices and the 3Rs.

Join our upcoming webinar for a detailed look at:

  • Reasons why male or female mice are sometimes preferred
  • The scientific impact sex bias has for multiple biological disciplines
  • The significant effect of sex bias on animal welfare
  • 3Rs guidelines and recommendations to eliminate sex bias in preclinical studies
