Teaching materials in Laboratory Animal Science


These pages are an initial attempt to collect links to web pages and other sources containing teaching texts on subjects related to pure laboratory animal science. These include ethics, legislation, comparative biology, anatomy, pharmacology and physiology, genetics, anaesthesia, analgesia, euthanasia, microbiology, environmental factors, experimental design and techniques.

While there are many web sites that describe laboratory animal facilities and suppliers, there appear to be relatively few that address the above topics.

Much of the information below has kindly been provided by members of the Comparative Medicine discussion list (CompMed), to whom we are very grateful.

Please note:

These pages are in their infancy. Our aim is to acknowledge all efforts to provide teaching materials on the web. Information cited here is not ranked in any form of priority, importance or category. Any omissions are wholly unintentional.
