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
