Training and education in laboratory animal science
All persons conducting or directing animal experiments and persons involved in experimental animal husbandry and breeding need to complete mandatory basic and continuous trainings. The courses provide knowledge and practical skills that are required for animal-friendly husbandry, responsible treatment of animals in experiments/breeding.
In 2014, ETH and the University of Zurich (Institute for Laboratory Animal Science, LTK) concluded a cooperation agreement with the intent to broaden the range of mandatory and optional trainings in the field of laboratory animal science and animal welfare. Information on the course contents and dates can be found here:

In addition, we offer a special program for animal caretakers that focuses on the individual needs of their field of activity (for further information, please contact Dr. Maike Heimann).
