Join the FELASA Workshop “Better research through better reporting and reproducibility” on Monday, June 10th from 16.15 to 17.45 – “Club E” Room (Workshop code: OWE3, in Felasa Final Detailed program: ).
The workshop will focus on practical options to achieve better research reporting and reproducibility. Participants will learn about reporting of animal models environmental conditions and additional measures to make the procedure even more rigorous.
The seminar, through interesting presentations delivered by Opinion Leaders of the European and American LA communities, will review historical concerns and contemporary issues: recent Conferences have, in fact, included much discussion on research reproducibility, and opportunities for improvements.
The workshop will:
The Workshop will underline how environmental factors are under-recognized as contributors to experimental variation, and how this information is rarely shared or requested.
The workshop will moreover analyse how academia, pharma and CROs are using newer technologies as the DVC® System, to acquire environmental data and individual cage data emphasizing repeatability and rigor.
The workshop will not only present examples of practical application of digital information within a unit, but also across a global organization, and related effects on study reproducibility.
Husbandry, in fact, impacts on reproducibility and data consistency: while “meets Guide standards” is the “company line”, the details of daily care vary between institutions.
Differences in cage components, housing density, cage changing frequency and practices are all recognized to impact on animal development, physiology and behaviour. Therefore, suggestions on how to improve reproducibility of rodent research will be presented during the Seminar.
A panel discussion based on audience questions will close the session.
The target audience includes all individuals engaged in research with animal models including animal Facility Managers, Lab Animal and Research Technicians, Staff, Veterinarians, IACUC members and scientists; editors, reviewers and authors.
Available seats are limited: don’t lose this opportunity and get registered!
