14h00       Animal Welfare and Its Impact on Scientific Research

Over the past decades we have seen an emerge of animal welfare as a discipline of interest but its impact on scientific outputs can sometimes be underestimated. In this presentation we will cover key points on:

  • Keeping animal welfare and biosecurity at the center of your research
  • Possibilities on our hands to improve such practices
  • Developing clinical scoring system in experimental mouse models to set timely and humane endpoints

Speaker: Cintia Philipon, PhD | Veterinarian Responsible for Animal Welfare


15h00       Scientific Reproducibility, Biosecurity, and the 3Rs - Determining Where to Acquire Animal Models

The COVID-19 pandemic and its resulting implications have made research institutions think about how to best manage their animal colonies. For both researchers and facility teams, two common questions have arisen – when does it make sense to breed models in-house, and when is it best to obtain them from a qualified vendor?

Find out the answers to these questions in this seminar, where you’ll learn about:

  • Reproducibility, breeding, and genetic integrity
  • Best practices for biosecurity and animal health
  • Generating the right number of animals and the 3Rs
  • Opportunity costs and the best utilization of resources
  • Submitting publications and the ARRIVE Guidelines 2.0
