Experimental Design and Analysis of Data from Animal Experiments

This three-day course aims at making researchers sufficiently knowledgeable on experimental design and statistics to make results from animal experiments more reliable, robust and reproducible, while avoiding animal waste and complying with the 3Rs of animal research, with particular emphasis on ”Reduction’.
Requirements: A laptop will be necessary to participate in the course, in order to run the statistics software
Target audience: This course is particularly aimed at researchers responsible for designing and/or carrying out animal experiments. It is also highly recommended for members of Animal Welfare Bodies or Competent Authorities responsible for evaluating animal research projects.
Course duration: 18h
