Event Information


UCL Bloomsbury Campus

Are you a research student involved in research using animals or animal tissues? Would you like an awareness of research integrity issues and how they impact on scientific quality, animal welfare and the 3Rs principles of humane science (to replace, reduce & refine animal use) from a range of moral and ethical viewpoints? Do you know how to design experiments to maximise validity, reproducibility, translatability and reducing suffering?

The UCL Biological Services are delighted to announce this new tailored two-day course to provide graduate students with an introduction to the factors that will impact upon the quality and usefulness of data resulting from research involving animals.

The interactive workshops are split into four half-day sessions and it is recommended the students attend the all four over a consecutive two-day period. Students must have completed parts 1 & 2 before they will be accepted to attend parts 3 & 4.
