Animal Wet Lab Training Sessions

In order to reduce traffic flow in our animal facilities and in following current social distancing recommendations all hands-on lab animal training sessions are cancelled until further notice.  When hands-on training is re-instituted an email to that effect will be sent out.


The purpose of our Education Program is to foster a philosophy of compassion and respect for the animals used in research, teaching and testing. In addition, the training program provides participants with the necessary knowledge base and technical skills to carry out required procedures, and to promote quality science based on appropriate use of animals by skilled individuals.
