I, Javier, have successfully passed the course of animal experimentation for research purposes from the Facultad de Veterinaria of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (see link of the course and contents in English and Spanish).
This course is credited by FELASA, the Federation of Laboratory Animal Science Associations (see link here).
It provides essential training for the design and execution of procedures and research projects with animals as biological model. In addition, the course fulfills the requirements necessary for the functions of animal care and euthanasia.
I have specialized in small mammals which are central for the development of our research project.
In this regard, the payment of the course has been fully costed with the project funds so thanks to this I have increased my capacities and skills as a researcher in animal experimentation.
Thanks also to the professors for their effort. The course has been very interesting and I highly recommend it!
