Working With Animals in Research Thumbnail
For Multiple Users
Using animals for scientific and medical research and testing is a long-standing practice that has saved countless lives and led to important breakthroughs. Unfortunately these animals are sometimes subjected to unethical or inhumane treatments at the hands of careless or ill-informed researchers. In 1966 Congress passed the Animal Welfare Act in response to growing public concerns about both the treatment of animals during the research process, and a growing black-market in stolen animals being sold to unsuspecting laboratories. The act regulates how research facilities treat animals, as well as regulating the trade and transportation of animals. During this course users will learn about the history and purpose of the Animal Welfare act and its requirements for the care and handling of animals. This course is designed for all employees and students working with animals in a research setting. The course is designed to assist the employer in meeting the training requirements of the Animal Welfare Act.
