Laboratory Animal Science - Utrecht, The Netherlands

21 September -  2 October 2015


A two week intensive course in Laboratory Animal Science will be organized at the Department of Animals in Science & Society, Utrecht University, The Netherlands in 21 September to  2 October 2015. This course has been organized since 1993.


The objective of this course is to present basic facts and principles that are essential for the humane use and care of laboratory animals and for the quality of research.


The contents of the course are in line with the recommendations of the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) regarding the training of the young scientist whose research involves the use of vertebrate animals.


The course may also be of interest for those who intend to set up a similar course in their own country. For this purpose, during the course the acquisition of teaching materials can be discussed with the course committee.
