    Biography
      John has been part of the Laboratory Animal Community since the early 1970's. Past experiences at academic Institutions, transgenic cores, imaging and phenotyping cores, large pharma, CROs and even being a vendor have provided an extensive amount of exposure to different operating, management and administrative systems for this community. Different roles at these facilities as Associate Professor, Clinician, Manager, Associate Director, Director, Senior Director, Administrator and Owner have given him much greater appreciation of the vast impacts and responsibilities of our community. The hands-on experience and involvement with animal model development, animal health maintenance, surgical model development and maintenance of geriatric animals in both GLP and non GLP (primarily academic) environments has led him to an acute awareness of how dynamic these areas are and how they are consistently evolving. The current challenge of study reproducibility while maintaining high translation science is an area of great interest. Being a Lab Animal Veterinarian (first and foremost) his major focus has been and continues to be looking at how animal research is conducted and to strive to continuously improve and understand the outcomes to the animals, the staff and the research. He has looked extensively at microenvironments and their impacts on the animals as this is a true passion of his.

    Abstract

    Digital technology is improving the speed and accuracy of all the world’s work processes and activities, the including the research vivarium.   This presentation will address some of ways that modernization of animal studies has been occurring, from room monitoring and control systems, to racks and individual cages and, to the use of holding cages as part of the actual study segment.  Using advantages of these  of these technologies in this manner enables researchers to automatically gather and interpret data while allowing facility managers to improve operating efficiency and utilization of resources.   The use of this type of data can be very helpful in resolving concerns about study reproducibility with the goal of improved research outcomes.   We will discuss the value of the technology-enabled animal facilities to the administration, management and investigators.
