Animal Research: Critical, Challenging and Creative Thinking


UCL Conference Suite
Seminar Room 2 | 188 Tottenham Court Road | W1T 7PH | United Kingdom

Open to: Student

This course is intended ONLY for students who are, or who are expecting to be conducting research involving the use of animals or using animal derived data. It will help you understand the moral and ethical arguments that unpin the range of viewpoints, introduce you to what the 3Rs principles of humane science (to replace, reduce & refine animal use) means in practice and give you an awareness of the importance of public engagement.

You will gain a general awareness of research integrity issues and how they are impacting on the quality of biomedical research. You will learn about evidence-based research and how to identify/avoid common pitfalls in basic experimental design.

The course introduces bioscience research reporting standards including the ARRIVE guidelines and good research practices that enhance animal welfare and help improve the reliability and reproducibility of animal derived data.
