|This 3 credits workshop for students of Fundamental Neuroscience (FN) and Drug Development & Neurohealth (DN) will teach careful and responsible use of laboratory animals in biomedical research. Next to technical and methodological aspects of planning and execution of animal experiments, time is spent on ethical considerations, well-being of animals and alternatives for animal research. This workshop offers you a series of lectures on Laboratory Animal Science (Alternatives, Behaviour, Anatomy, Physiology, Genetics, Laws & Regulations, Ethics) + task assignments focusing on designing procedures and projects, the proper choice of an animal model and the 3Rs (replacement, reduction and refinement). The workshop consists of a basic course and species-specific modules, i.e. theory and practical part. In the practical part you learn to perform procedures on animals in specific modules. This includes basic and appropriate biology (species specific), minimally invasive procedures (species specific) and principles of surgery. In period 3 of the 1st RM year the specialization coordinators of FN and DN will organize an information session for students on how to apply for this course.|
This course is for FN/DN 2nd year RM students only! Carefully check the Requirements (below) to see whether you are eligible to participate. If you meet the requirements, fill out the LAS Application Form that you received from the FN or DN track coordinator.
