New experimental design training school announced
The latest FRAME Reduction Committee training school is planned for April 18 – 21 at the University of Nottingham and will provide an appreciation of the factors that can help produce better data but use fewer laboratory animals.
Past courses have proved extremely popular with delegates, who have praised them highly. Most say they would recommend the course to colleagues. The University of Manchester, Faculty of Life Sciences, incorporated the course as part of its postgraduate syllabus after hosting two that were run by FRAME.
Experimental design text books usually offer no guidance on how to plan individual experiments to reduce the number of animals needed or to minimise the severity of the procedures involved. Well-planned experiment sequences can help to achieve research goals with a minimum of suffering caused to the animals.
If you or anyone you know is responsible for designing animal experiments this course is a must.
