A two-week (80 h) intensive course on the care and use of laboratory animals: mice, rats and zebrafish will be organized at the University of Crete (Department of Biology), in collaboration with the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, FORTH, in June 2016. The course is a continuation of the successful Erasmus IP course on the “Care and use of Laboratory Animals: Science, Philosophy and Society” that was held in spring 2014. The main objectives of this course are (i) to provide advanced education, training and expertise in the care and use of vertebrate laboratory animals, (ii) to present the basic philosophical concepts and scientific principles on animal welfare, (iii) to clearly comprehend the vital principles for quality research, and (iv) to provide an international certificate demonstrating competence in working with laboratory animals for research purposes.
The course comprises lectures, practical hands-on training, group and independent work activities and final examinations. The contents of the course are in line with the requirements of the new European Directive 2010/63/EU (covering functions A, B, C, D) and the recommendations of the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) for the accreditation of Educational and Training courses in Laboratory Animal Sciences. Successful participants will be awarded a certificate, now a requirement according to the revised European Directive, which demonstrates competence in working with laboratory animals for research purposes. Target groups: Professionals, PhD and post-graduate students from all fields of Biomedical Sciences who are responsible for directing as well as for carrying out animal experiments.
· The official language of the course is English.
· The Fee for this course is of 650,00 EUR including course material, coffee-breaks, lunches and transportation to and from the University. Accommodation will be provided on request.
