LSM – Animal experiments: writing an application and animalarium rules at the Jette campus

LSM – Animal experiments: writing an application and animalarium rules at the Jette campus.

Both sessions are open for PhD students but are also suitable for Technicians, Post-Docs and Principal Investigators.

The "animalarium rules @ jette campus" session will be in Dutch.

-    Wednesday - Writing an application for Animal Experiments
Any research project involving animal experiments requires the permission of the Ethical Committee for Animal Experiments ('Ethische Commissie Dierproeven', ECD in Dutch) before it can begin.

This information session will explain the Ethical Committee's tasks and how to write a proper application. It is important to complete the application form as thoroughly as possible and to keep certain principles in mind, in order to minimise the chance of comments and questions from the ECD, which in turn can delay the start of your project.

During this session we will present following topics:
- What is the Ethical Committee for Animal Experiments (ECD): composition, tasks, evaluation criteria
- How and when to write an application: practical explanation on completing the application form and the non-technical summary (niet-technische samenvatting  or NTS).

-    Thursday – Animalarium rules @ Jette campus (Only in Dutch; an english session will be organized soon)
During this session Sigrid Van Laere will explain all (new) rules that are implemented at the animalarium in Jette. This includes:
-    Writing appropriate labels.
-    Follow up sheets for animal experiments.
-    Keeping your animal files updated.
-    Guidelines for commonly used procedures
