RSPCA / UFAW Rodent Welfare Meeting 2020
This year’s meeting is titled “Cumulative Experiences” and will thus focus on the cumulative experiences of laboratory rodents. The first session will address how we might use science to understand the long term welfare of rodents, and how cumulative experiences affect wellbeing over their lifetimes. The second session will focus on practical ways to use this knowledge to better assess rodent welfare, reduce suffering and improve their lives at the cageside. There will also be an update from a Home Office Inspector and the meeting will close with a discussion session (topic will be voted on by participants).
You need to register for the meeting which will run from 11am to 3.30pm on Wednesday 7th October. The meeting is free to attend but donations to the charities running the event are encouraged to ensure that they can continue to offer these fantastic meetings.
