Good laboratory practices in scientific research using living organisms are a major concern for the credibility of science. In this sense, certification by Direção Geral de Alimentação e Veterinária (DGAV) is mandatory. Every researcher that uses animal models (vertebrates) for experimentation or other scientific purposes must be certified.
The increasing use of aquatic organisms as experimental models justifies the need to provide specific training for those who work or want to work with these animals. The main concern in handling aquatic organisms, similarly to rodents, is to guarantee the animal comfort and welfare. Always in compliance with legal requirements, researchers try full exploitation of these biological resources.
The aim of the course is to provide skills to whom work with experimental models, with respect for the animals and for the contribution they provide to research. The course is specifically aimed at the use of aquatic organisms as experimental models, with particular focus on vertebrates.
The program of this course is in accordance with the criteria established by the DGAV and Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science (FELASA) for courses in Laboratory Animal Science, category B. The frequency of this course will allow obtaining certification as "Researcher" or "Research Technician" to conduct animal experiments.
