“[Loy's] considerable research marketplace experience will help us spread our message that while animals are still an essential part of scientific research, there are an increasing number of ways to reduce, refine and replace animal use.”—Ben Cappiello, current NA3RsC President and AxoSim executive.
SAN DIEGO (PRWEB) February 24, 2021
Scientist.com, the healthcare industry’s leading marketplace for life science research, announced today that Meaghan Loy, MS, ALAT, has joined the Board of Directors of the North American 3Rs Collaborative (NA3RsC), an organization committed to advancing the Replacement, Reduction and Refinement (3Rs) of animal use in research. As a board member, Loy will help the NA3RsC fulfill its goal of facilitating communication, sharing and collaboration to bring transformational solutions to advance science and animal welfare.
“The NA3RsC is excited to welcome Meaghan to its Board,” said Ben Cappiello, current NA3RsC President and AxoSim executive. “Her considerable research marketplace experience will help us spread our message that while animals are still an essential part of scientific research, there are an increasing number of ways to reduce, refine and replace animal use.”
Loy is currently the Director of In Vivo Services at Scientist.com, a research marketplace that enables researchers to access pre-assessed animal model suppliers as well as hundreds of suppliers that provide in vitro models that can potentially replace or reduce the use of in vivo models. She joined Scientist.com in 2018 and is an expert in the use of COMPLi®, Scientist.com’s award-winning platform that introduces a common, comprehensive process and supply agreement supporting access to pre-assessed suppliers of in vivo and in vitro research models. Prior to Scientist.com, Loy worked at Science Exchange and Covance Laboratories. She has a bachelor’s degree in Agricultural Sciences and a master’s degree in Biotechnology from the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
“NA3RsC is creating powerful new approaches to the 3Rs, including translational digital biomarkers, microphysiological systems and rodent health monitoring, in addition to its outstanding education efforts.” said Meaghan Loy, MS, ALAT, Director of In Vivo Services at Scientist.com. “I am honored to work with such an essential organization on collaborative opportunities to refine, reduce and replace animals in research.”
