We hosted a mouse handling webinar with Professor Jane Hurst of the University of Liverpool from 11am to 12pm (BST) on Friday 27 April 2018. Take this opportunity to get up to date with the evidence base and start best practice in mouse handling at your establishment. Research led by Professor Jane Hurst and colleagues at the University of Liverpool has shown that picking up laboratory mice by the tail induces aversion and high anxiety in these animals, which can impact on scientific outcomes. In contrast, the use of a tunnel or hand-cupping mice considerably reduces stress and anxiety, and results in animals that are much more willing to voluntarily interact with the handler.
