TRAINING-WORKSHOP ON ANIMAL CARE AND USE IN RESEARCH AND ANIMAL BIOSAFETY

Overview
Research projects particularly in the biological and biomedical sciences may involve the use of living  vertebrate animals. Obtaining quality research results in animal studies would entail not only ensuring sound study design but must also address animal welfare issues and safety concerns. Procedures in the care and use of animals in research must comply with applicable laws and regulations and also maintain acceptable standards in animal biosafety.

In line with the advocacy objectives of the Bureau of Animal Industry on animal welfare, the Institute intends to contribute further to national advocacy and capacity building thru the conduct of this two-day training workshop as a means to help promote a proper attitude in the care and use of animals in research and capacitate investigators on the acceptable procedures in the conduct of research using animals and animal  biosafety.

Who should attend
The training-workshop is intended for investigators, researchers and teachers doing teaching and research work involving use of living vertebrate animals.
