Improving the quality of research applications involving animals

The justification of your group sizes is a key part of good experimental design and, when it comes to the use of animals in research, a large part of the ethical justification for their use. This workshop will cover how to construct a justification of animal numbers section for grant applications to the major UK funders as well as give advice on related PPL questions. This will include estimating experimental and breeding numbers as well as addressing points on experimental design. We will also discuss why this renewed focus on good experimental design is important and what you can do to make sure you meet the expectations of funders and reviewers.

Another session is available on Tuesday 22 September 2pm – 4pm and you only need to come along to one of the offered dates, so pick the one that suits you best. These replace the cancelled in-person workshops that had been scheduled for April 2020.
