Animal Wet Lab Training Sessions
Wet lab training sessions are now available but are limited to personnel specifically identified as having approved site access and working on research projects that have received approval from Vice-President (Research and International) to continue.

All wet lab training sessions will be arranged as 1:1 sessions as needed. Please contact autp@umanitoba.ca to schedule a session.


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.
