Stress and Pain in Research Reproducibility: Considering What Matters in the Vivarium
May 12, 2020
12:00 PM - 1:30 PM CT

WEB-062: Environmental factors and staff practices in the vivarium result in variables that can affect the welfare and physiology of lab animals and therefore alter the research studies relying on these animals. How do we achieve a balance in these variables to improve animal welfare and strengthen the science? We can start by addressing the major sources of stress to the animals. In this webinar, we will discuss variables of single vs. social housing, cold stress vs. adequate nesting, and unalleviated pain vs. analgesics and their effect on a series of tumor models in mice. We will review data from scientific literature that teach us how to reduce these variables in tumor studies for better modeling of the respective human diseases. The 1.5-hour time frame will allow for plenty of time to submit your questions, thus giving you a more personalized training experience.

Audience: Veterinarians, veterinary technicians, senior technicians, researchers, facility managers.
