During the course, the attitude formation of the participant towards the laboratory animals and within animal experiments is of paramount importance. All legal requirements will be discussed.
Animal experiments should be set up and carried out by experts. In all cases, harm to the well-being of the experimental animal must be reduced to the absolute minimum. After all, all animals ultimately have the same intrinsic value.
This requires knowledge, expertise and a correct attitude towards experimental animals. Since 1986, Utrecht University has been offering the Laboratory Animal Science course. It's now offered 14 times a year. It is the longest running and the most given course on laboratory animal science in Europe. The course is established, provided and continuously updated with the developments in science, ethics and legislation.
