Course Title: 1001 Laboratory Animal Science Focussing on 3R Principles

Course Description

After successful completion of the lecture, the participants will have a detailed and specialized animal experimental knowledge, based on the latest scientific findings in laboratory animal science and closely related to the 3R strategy.  Students should be able to integrate the 3R principles into the experimental animal science work area. This requires that they have a fundamental knowledge of the 3Rs and laboratory animal science in order to respond critically and reflectively to previous strategies. This includes compliance with current legal regulations and ethical criteria as well as animal-friendly husbandry, care and maintenance of laboratory animals (in the sense of "state-of-the-art") as well as all areas of planning, execution, assessment and improvement of animal experiments.
