This March we're excited to bring you answers to frequently asked questions about rat tickling, a biochip model for sarcoidosis, group metabolism housing for NHPs, and enrichment innovations in the new episode of 3 Minute 3Rs. We're also calling for academic memberships to NA3RsC, highlighting an upcoming enrichment symposium, and welcoming our new intern!
Have you considered tickling your rats, but still have questions? Check out our newest resource of answers to frequently asked questions about rat tickling including answers to questions about model effects, age, strain, sex, and procedures.
Do you work at a university or other non-profit? The NA3RsC is now offering non-profit memberships so universities too can visibly demonstrate their commitment to the 3Rs as a member. Consider asking your university to become a member of NA3RsC today!
NA3RsC will be participating in the 2021 MSMR Science of Enrichment Symposium. Mark your calendars for 10am-1pm EST on Tuesday, May 18 for interactive workshops on non-aversive handling and rodent health monitoring.
Welcome our new intern
A warm welcome to Amelia Eigerman who is joining us as our first communications intern. Amelia is a graduating senior at Smith College. They have experience in animal behavior research and veterinary medicine and a passion for animal welfare science, especially environmental enrichment.
As you can see, NA3RsC is working hard to advance the science and education of refining, reducing, and replacing animals in laboratory research. Your donation to the North American 3Rs Collaborative will enable us to expand these efforts.
