Animal Ethics
Ethical awareness is at the heart of any programme of work that involves using animals in research. While we tend to design a project and then consider ethics, placing research ethics and animal welfare foremost in the development process does more than help to gain approval for the work; a clearly defined harm-benefit analysis can shape the development of any project involving living animals, underpinning all aspects of the work, and outlining the research benefits in the first stages of the project.

This two-day workshop will cover all aspects of ethics covered by research regulations and FELASA requirements. It will help you understand the different attitudes to animal research you may encounter and how they have influenced current practices. You will learn how to create a project that will be fully understood by those considering it, develop a clear harm-benefit statement and apply it to a framework for a successful research application: one that is approved first time.

The workshop takes place in room P0601, Thursday 12:30-17:00 and Friday 09:30-16:30.

Success is saving time, effort (and money) re-drafting applications for ethics committees, when you could be changing the world with your brilliant science!
