This course is a regulatory requirement and meets the training guidelines of the National Advisory Committee for Laboratory Animal Research (NACLAR) in Singapore. The course addresses the needs of principal investigators, researchers, clinician scientists, medical technologists and all others involved in research procedures and training courses that require the use of animal models.
This is a comprehensive course that will impart the requisite knowledge and basic skills for using animals in research and training in a safe and humane manner and will allow participants to develop a better understanding of the procedures required. Successful completion of the course by PI and collaborators will be a pre-requisite for IACUC approval of research or training protocols utilizing animals.
The course is organised jointly by the SingHealth Research Secretariat, the Department of Experimental Surgery, SGH and SGH-IACUC. In view of the overwhelming response to past courses and in order to meet impending licensing requirements, please submit your application form as soon as possible.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in organising this course and wish all participants an enjoyable and fruitful experience.
