To an increasing extent, the scientific literature is critical of the translatability of research results achieved with animal studies to humans, and of the reproducibility of research conducted with animals. More and more, that criticism now appears several times every quarter in the editorials, news and correspondence sections of leading scientific journals such as Nature and Science. Those contributions come up with multiple reasons and give extensive advice on what should be done to improve the translatability and reproducibility of animal experiments or how to replace them.

Full coverage (a dedicated course)
No species is addressed specifically
|Details on the topic or technology covered:||
This course addresses different proposed solution with regard to the potential of non-animal approaches. How to select the best animal model? How to design your experiment given your specific research question? The importance of tailoring husbandry and care to the experimental need also taking into account the quality of the animals: How does refinement affect your animals, hence your experimental outcomes? And last but not least, the reporting of experimental results.
