What kinds of ethical and practical challenges do wildlife researchers face? How do these challenges compare with those faced by researchers working with laboratory animals? And how is wildlife research currently (and ideally) regulated in the UK? This plenary given by Dr Julie Lane is organised by the Oxford Species & Spaces Animal Research Nexus team, held at Keble College, Oxford, 5-6pm on the 30th of September, 2019. It may be of particular interest to conservation and wildlife researchers. @APHAgovuk @AnimalResNexus

For many, talking about animal research remains taboo. As a way of highlighting one of the roles that animal research plays, some have suggested labelling medicines as ‘tested on animals’. But is the act of labelling so simple? What choices could or should be made in framing the role of animals in medicine production? Join us in using an interactive labelling session as a way of opening a wider discussion around animal research. All views welcome!

The Mouse Exchange

Where do lab mice come from? Where do they end up? Joins us for crafting felt mice to exchange or take home. You can also explore the history, practices, and ideas of care involved in making laboratory mice. But don't worry - if you would like to sew a mouse but are less sure about discussing laboratory animal research origins that is absolutely fine!

Publications

The issues of openness, transparency and public engagement about animal research have taken focus in several different countries in recent years. This open access paper gives an account of a two-day-long, international expert forum on this topic.

This Statement explains how the Animal Research Nexus Team makes use of any personal information collected about you in connection with our research.

In the Species and Spaces project, we’re exploring people’s perceptions around fish use, sentience, and how these shape and define assumptions around their welfare requirements.
