Other teaching materials within Laboratory Animal Science
This page contains links to sites with teaching materials within laboratory animal science, some of which were produced by the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science. It also contains links to other resources that may be of use when implementing the three R's in laboratory animal science.
Please search the NORINA database, which is part of this website, for information on models, simulators and other educational and training aids.
Research Animal Training (RAT): interactive resources produced by the Flecknell laboratory (previously FLAIRE learning)
LAS interactive: information on animals in research and on scientific methods in animal experiments. Integrates the information portals VTK ONLINE (Laboratory Animal Science Online) and LAS CAMPUS (training portal within Laboratory Animal Science).

Some of this information has kindly been provided by members of the Comparative Medicine discussion list (CompMed), to whom we are very grateful.
NetVet (Veterinary Resources on the Internet) and The Electronic Zoo (Animal Resources on the Internet): these two sites are now old and have not been updated recently, so there will be many dead links, but in their time they were probably the most comprehensive collections of links on the Internet. The NetVet site includes a subcategory called Comparative Medicine, covering Laboratory Animal Science.
