1st Technicians Theoretical Practical Training Course for the Care and Handling of Animal Models and 6th RedCICUALES Seminar-Workshop

The 1st Technicians Theoretical Practical Training Course for the Care and Handling of Animal Models and the 6th RedCICUALES Seminar-Workshop aim to provide training in Spanish to Colombian laboratory animals technicians who do not have official training in the topic. Since 2010 the RedCICUALES and the Association ACCBAL have been organizing workshops and congresses to train Colombian community users of lab animals. Nevertheless, a lack of official training focused on the culture of care and training of lab animal technicians is evident in the country.

Organize a seminar on basics of Laboratory Animal Science in 2022

The seminar aims to train the neuroscience community in Greece regarding the new legislation and other changes in the use of laboratory animals in research. The proposed event (final form of the event is not decided yet) will include the following themes: • Legislative framework for the protection of animals used for scientific purposes-requirement for annual statistical data information • Authorization of facilities and experimental protocols • Requirement for Replacement, Reduction and Refinement: the 3Rs • Cost benefit analysis • Guidelines for writing an experimental protocol • Experimental design-Statistical analysis • Non-Technical Summaries • Roles and tasks in the animal facilities for experimental purposes • Requirements for education of persons using animals for research Given the circumstances, the event will be held in person (or hybrid form) in the premises of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki AUTh (https://kedea.rc.auth.gr/info.html) at the Research Dissemination Center or online (as a webinar).

Organize a 1-day symposium “We have to talk about rodent surgery”

Surgery is an integral part of many animal experiments and 1-day symposium “We have to talk about rodent surgery”, 12 June 2022, Marseille, France Surgery is an integral part of many experimental studies. Planning must incorporate training, aseptic technique, anaesthesia and analgesia, and peri-operative care. Expert surgical practices result in measurably better outcomes and improved experimental validity. Rodent surgery is challenging and expensive. The animals are very small and require appropriate instruments and equipment. There are many choices to make when selecting anaesthetics and analgesics in a variety of situations. Post-operative care is crucial to the animal’s health and welfare. And personnel require constant training and improvement to ensure the best possible results. For experimental surgeons no consistent training or certification standards are applied throughout Europe and rodent surgeons often did not receive a fundamental surgical training because they are not medical scientists. Additionally, there is a clear need to increase communication in order to better promote exchange of knowledge and expertise within the surgical research community, to define standards and to develop guidelines for good surgical practice and training as well as to train experimental surgeons in a standardised and certified manner. This one-day symposium will offer practical guidance from international experts on solutions for state-of-the-art rodent surgery. The speakers are all well-known international experts in rodent surgery and perioperative care.

Establishment of a good culture of Care in the Animal Facility of the Department of Zoology and Environment Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Colombo, Sri Lanka

Department of Zoology and Environment Sciences, Faculty of Science, University of Colombo facilitates teaching and research to over 400 undergraduates and postgraduate students annually. However, there is an unmet need of establishing a good culture of care in our animal facility which is the only lab animal facility of our faculty. Culture of care not only involves animal welfare but also the welfare of the personnel involved. Therefore, our first goal is to get our staff trained through Sri Lanka Association for Laboratory Animal Science’s annual training courses and equip the facility with new instruments as what we use currently are over 20 years old. Collectively, we believe that empowering the staff with adequate knowledge and equipping our facility will pave the way to establish and maintain a good culture in the facility and help to inculcate the 3Rs concept & promote humane animal experimentation in our young scientists.

CREATION OF AN INTERNATIONAL AND COLABORATIVE TRAINING COURSE : INTRODUCTION TO LABORATORY ANIMALS AND THEIR USE IN RESEARCH

AN INTERNATIONAL PROJECT OF A COLABORATIVE TRAINING COURSE, WHERE WE WANT TO DESIGN, CREATE, IMPLEMENT IMPORTANT INDISPENSABLE KNOWLEDGE RELATED TO LABORATORY ANIMALS AND THEIR USE IN RESEARCH IN 3 DIFFERENT UNDEVELOP COUNTRIES HAVING THESE OBJECTIVES: TO PROVIDE THE PARTICIPANTS AN ADEQUATE INTRODUCTION TO THE USE OF LABORATORY ANIMALS, STIMULATING THE RESPONSIBLE USE OF ANIMALS WITHIN THEIR PROJECTS, ENCOURAGE THEM TO CARRY OUT A CORRECT PROCEDURE AS A WAY TO DEVELOP A QUALITY RESEARCH ACTIVITY. TO SENSITIZE ABOUT THE IMPORTANCE OF THE USE OF ANIMALS FOR RESEARCH, AS WELL AS THE ETHICAL AND LEGAL CONSIDERATIONS WHEN USING THEM TO AVOID THE USELESS SACRIFICE OF ANIMALS AND ENCOURAGE REFINEMENT. TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE INTRODUCTION OF CURRENT AND ESSENTIAL TOPICS ABOUT THE USE OF LABORATORY ANIMALS AND THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH RESEARCH.
