Course description

RWTH Aachen University is dedicated to the 3Rs: Reduction, Refinement, and Replacement of animal experiments, as outlined by Russell and Burch in 1959. To truly honor these principles, scientists need to be open to advancements and receive top-notch training. The enforcement of EU directive 2010/63/EU, which focuses on the protection of animals used in scientific research, has direct implications for scientific staff, their training requirements, and the job market. To address the latest EU regulations and the need for highly skilled scientists, RWTH Aachen University offers the executive Master program, M.Sc. Laboratory Animal Science. This program ensures that scientists are well-equipped to meet both regulatory standards and the evolving demands of their field.
