The objective of the course is to present basic facts and principles that are essential for the humane use and care of animals and for the quality of research. From the beginning of the course, emphasis is placed on the fact that the scientist is the central person in the design and performance of animal experiments, and that he/she has specific responsibilities with respect to the welfare of the animals used.
