Dec. 5th - 16th, 2016
CSIR- Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology, New Delhi
Laboratory Animal Science (LAS) is a specialized subject considered under Veterinary Medicine. LAS is a fast developing subject in the world which is necessary for bio-medical research. The development of cell culture techniques and computer models has reduced the use of animal models in research in the recent past. These in vitro models however, cannot substitutein vivo animal models totally. Knowledge and expertise on Laboratory Animal Science is an urgent need for researchers engaged in animal experiments.
This course is organized and conducted in order to disseminate basic facts and principles that are essential for the humane use and care of animals recruited for research, to support a critical and analytical attitude towards the scientific knowledge underlying laboratory animal science related activities and to improve quality of research conducted. Apart from that, the main agenda of suggesting this course is to train young scientists and Researchers all over the world.
The program during the 2 week intensive course is based on the category 'C' recommendations of the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) which is being organized by the CSIR-Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology.
In short, 3rd CCLAS 2016 is going to be very special indeed, so start making your plans now!
Final Registration date has been extended to 22nd November, 2016
