How To Improve Nonclinical Study Outcomes By Mitigating Research Animal Stress
Discover the impact that calm research animals have on study outcomes!
Many potential stressors in the laboratory environment can impact research animals, including sounds, human interactions, behavioral expectations, dosing procedures and sample collections. It is critical for research scientists and laboratory technicians to understand the instinctual tendencies of each species and implement effective animal care and training programs. Researchers can mitigate potential stressors in the research environment with calm, well-trained laboratory animals, leading to higher fidelity data and more accurate study results for your compound.Stream this on-demand webinar as Sinclair Research and Sinclair BioResources present “How To Improve Nonclinical Study Outcomes By Mitigating Research Animal Stress”.
In our webinar, Sinclair will help you:
- Understand how natural animal behaviors and psychology translate to laboratory research
- Learn how a well-defined training program can mitigate stress and improve study outcomes
- Review a case study on how stressors can elevate plasma cortisol levels
- Discover how research animal and technician behaviors can impact your nonclinical program
