Annual Conference of the 3R-Network Baden-Württemberg 2022

12. + 13th May 2022
Tübingen, Germany

This year, the annual conference 2022 of the 3R-Network Baden-Württemberg will take place on 05/12 + 05/13/2022 in Tübingen. In the course of the event, scientists supported by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts (MWK) Baden-Württemberg will present their respective project progresses. In addition to the reports from the ten groups funded to date, the conference will provide plenty of opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange, exciting poster presentations, constructive discussions and networking activities along with presentations given by renowned (inter)national 3R experts. We particulary invite young scientists from the 3R field to participate the conference.

We are looking forward to an exciting conference program with leading (inter)national experts sharing and discussing their latest advances all around the 3Rs.


We are excited to invite you to this year’s annual conference of the 3R-Network Baden-Württemberg to the historic building of the Old Anatomy of the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen.

Old Anatomy
Faculty of Medicine of the Eberhard Karls University Tübingen

Marcelle Holloway

Marcelle Holloway has been working at the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre, European Union Reference Laboratory for the Validation of Alternative Methods (EURL ECVAM) in Ispra, Italy since 2017. She is involved in a number of projects directly supporting and advancing the impact of Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes. The projects mainly concern Three Rs education and training. Formerly employed at the European Commission’s Directorate General Environment in Brussels, she worked on the adoption of Directive 2010/63/EU. She has worked at the European Commission for 17 years in total based in Luxembourg, Brussels and now Ispra, and has a background in constitutional law and politics of the European Union, economics, publishing and communications.

Dr. Janna Nawroth

Janna Nawroth is a Principal Investigator at the Helmholtz Pioneer Campus in Munich, Germany.

She received her PhD in Biology at the California Institute of Technology, where she studied the structure-function relationships of jellyfish propulsion and used these insights to engineer muscle powered pumps for biomedical research. For her postdoctoral training, she was awarded the Technology Development Fellowship at the Harvard University Wyss Institute. She developed Organ-Chips and advanced imaging technologies with Don Ingber and Kit Parker to study the mechanics of human heart, lung and liver tissues, before continuing this work at the Organ-Chip company Emulate and later at the University of Southern California. In 2020, Dr. Nawroth received an ERC Starting Grant for studying the role of mechanical forces and defective mucociliary clearance in chronic airway disease.

Her group’s primary research interest is to understand the mechanobiology of the airway epithelium. She proposes that chronic airway diseases, such asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), are exacerbated and perpetuated by a change in the mechanical environment of the airways that promotes disease progression and lowers defenses to irritants and pathogens. To investigate this hypothesis, her group studies how normal and abnormal mechanical forces shape epithelial differentiation and remodeling on genetic and functional levels, and how the resulting properties of extracellular matrix, tissue architecture, and mucus affect mucociliary clearance, the primary mechanical defense of the airways. Dr. Nawroth combines three different approaches to study these mechanisms at different spatial scales: Airway-on-a-Chip models, advanced imaging and analysis tools, and physics-based in silico models.

Prof. Dr. Andreas Stahl

Andreas Stahl is a professor in the Department of Nutritional Science & Toxicology at the UC Berkeley, USA.

Together with his team, he pursues the overarching goal to advance human health by re-engineer lipid fluxes in the context of obesity-related disorders to protect certain tissues, such as the liver, from detrimental effects of ectopic lipid deposition and to generate metabolically highly active tissues that can serve as a save destination for excess fatty acids. To this end, they are investigating molecular mechanisms governing lipid uptake, particularly for fatty acids and CoQ, hepatobiliary diseases, and adipocyte biology. Toward the latter, they have been working on novel bioengineering based approaches to expand and activate brown adipose tissue. Further, to facilitate the assessment of altered nutrient fluxes, they have been developing and testing novel bioluminescent imaging approaches to quantitatively assess macro- and micronutrients in vivo. Furthermore, the Stahl Lab has been working as part of a multidisciplinary team toward modeling human metabolic function and disease using iPSC based microphysiological systems, aka organs-on-a-chip, for adipocytes, hepatocytes, and islets.
