Full coverage (a dedicated course)
No species is addressed specifically
Participants will leave the course with a contemporary understanding of good practice as it relates to the responsible use of animals in bioscience research, and an awareness of the tools and resources that are freely available to support improvements in research practices. Application of this will enhance the reliability and reproducibility of studies involving the use of animals, or animal derived material, thus ensuring that the benefits of the research are maximized, and harms minimized.
