Laboratory Animal Sciences

LAS 2016LabRoots' two-day international Laboratory Animal Science (LAS) virtual conference, that took place on February 3rd and 4th, 2016, is now On Demand. This is the premier online-only Free conference focused on laboratory animal science.

Keynotes during this event included Malcolm Macleod, Jeremy G Turner, Katie Lidster, and Huw Golledge, discussing the topics below:

  • Risks of Bias in in vivo research – and what to do about them
  • Vibration, Noise & Ultrasonic Noise From Vivarium and Lab Equipment as Rapidly Growing Confounds in Animal Research
  • The ARRIVE guidelines: Improving the design and reporting of animal research to optimize the reproducibility of animal studies
  • A good death? Are our ‘euthanasia’ methods for lab animals actually humane?

This year’s Program Committee led by Dr. Szczepan Baran, Head of Innovative Animal Technologies and Training at Novartis Pharmaceuticals, and composed of over 30 world renowned experts, presented the conference theme titled “Optimizing Design, Conduct and Reproducibility of Animal Studies” with the following tracks:
