About the Certificate Course

IISER Kolkata, Sate of the Art, Small Animal Facility (SAF) is hosting a “Certificate Course (Hands On Training) On Basics Of Laboratory Animal Handling (Mice), & Research”, to be held Every Two Times a Month in between 1st to 7th & 15th to 21st of every Year. The hands-on training is aimed towards enhaning the knowledge and ability of researchers in “handling small animals (mice),ethics, basics of animal house management, different research methodologies towards animal research & future perspectives of inter-disciplinary & multi- disciplinary research opportunities”


Scope of the Certificate Course

We are organizing a short term, 7 days certificate course to provide basics & hand on training on:

1) Animal Handling Techniques
2) Histopathology Techniques
3) Molecular Biology Techniques
4) Different Imaging Techniques

The hands-on training will be accompanied by theoretical lectures on the principle, applications and advances of these tools and techniques.Our overall objective is to make students and early-career investigators conversant in laboratory animal handling techniques, ethics & care, as well as research opportunities.

In addition, this training will help students think of alternative careers by providing the basis for them to become experts in animal handling, histopathology and different imaging techniques that are in high demand in current research facilities.

This course can create career opportunities abroad
