Important information

Before you start an experiment it is important to consider some things.

  • All procedures involving animals must be approved by the Animal Ethical Committee before experiments can begin. UUBF will check ethical permits and verify that all procedures have been approved. You are welcome to contact UUBF so that we can help you with ethical applications and permission issues.
  • Before you can start to work with animal experiments you need proper education (equivalent to FELASA certification). If you already have education you can send your certificate to the University veterinarian or contact UUBF and we will assist you.
  • The planning of behavior experiments including start date will be done in consultation with UUBF. You need to plan your experiments in advance as many researchers share limited resources!
