*Expanded and Updated! 
Average rating:

“Fantastic opportunity to ensure we are utilising best practice when it comes to understanding our roles and responsibilities as it relates to the oversight of use of animals in research and teaching.”
Justin Clarke, ANU Senior University Veterinarian

“I very much enjoyed the breadth of the course and the great number of relevant topics covered so well in a relatively short amount of time. There were many pearls of wisdom throughout, the ones you only get from someone with years of experience in leadership positions at the highest level. A ‘must do’ course for anyone involved in or interested in ethical processes governing animal research in Australia.”
Marc Ruitenberg, Associate Professor, University of Queensland

If you are a researcher, ethics advisor or animal ethics committee member, you have an individual responsibility in protecting the safety and welfare of animals involved in research.

You’re juggling a great deal in animal research – so navigating and keeping up to date with strict animal research legislation can be overwhelming.

You can access a solution to help reduce the burden of navigating these laws and regulations.

Led by animal research and ethics expert Tim Dyke, this workshop will help boost your confidence in applying ethical principles and legislation – so you can avoid risk in control.

You’ll also get the opportunity to hear from professionals in similar roles to you about how they apply this information in their daily roles, and will be provided with real life examples from our expert facilitator who has over 30 years’ experience in the field.
