Laboratory Animal Science Course on Non-Human Primates

Save as calendar entry

FELASA accredited LAS Course on NHP (English)

The work with non-human primates (NHP) in research is challenging and personnel need a highly specialised and thorough education. Until recently, no FELASA accredited LAS course specialising on NHP existed.
The DPZ together with the former European Primate Network (EUPRIM-Net) has developed such a course in accordance with the common education and training framework that was developed by the Expert Working Group (EWG) of the European Commission for the EU to fulfil the requirements under Articles 23, and 24 of Directive 2010/63/EU on the protection of animals used for scientific purposes.

Our complete course contents for Function A (carrying out procedures on animals) and B (designing procedures and projects) were developed according to the educational objectives as given in the working document of the EWG and the current FELASA accreditation guidelines from May 2014. The course was accredited by the FELASA in summer 2017. To this date it is the only NHP-specific FELASA course.
