International Course in Laboratory Animal Science

18- 19 November 2013

Jointly organized by



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 invitro models however, cannot substituteinvivo 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  Institute of Genomics and Integrative Biology in collaboration with CPCSEA, NIAW and Utrecht University of the Netherlands.

The proposed course will discuss the following topics on the scheduled days.

      1.  Introduction to Laboratory Animal Science
      2.   Ethical discussion on animal experiments
      3.   Introduction to the preparation of an experimental protocol and the critical analysis of a scientific paper
