Lead

The Doctoral Programme in Biology of Infections and Global Health (BIGH), welcomes all doctoral students and researchers at KI to the seminar "Taking up the challenge – Experiences with the adaptation of existing and new research protocols during the COVID-19 pandemic".

Content

The COVID-19 pandemic has not only affected our private lives but also our research. Priorities have shifted, ethical guidelines have changed and new, but robust ways of data collection are needed. This seminar seeks to provide guidance by sharing experiences from various settings.

At the end of the seminar you will: 

  • Recognise and understand the impact COVID-19 may have on research in different settings
  • Understand and explain dimensions and ways of addressing the COVID-19 pandemic within research projects
  • Know and use resources available to move research on and under COVID-19 forward

Biography
Stuart Kauffman is a medical doctor, theoretical biologist, and complex systems researcher who studies the origin of life on Earth. He is emeritus professor of biochemistry at the University of Pennsylvania and affiliated to the Institute for Systems Biology, Seatle. He is arguing that the complexity of biological systems and organisms might result as much from self-organization and far-from-equilibrium dynamics as from Darwinian natural selection, as discussed in his book Origins of Order (1993). He used random boolean networks to investigate generic self-organizing properties of gene regulatory networks, proposing that cell types are dynamical attractors in gene regulatory networks. He proposed the self-organized emergence of collectively autocatalytic sets of polymers for the origin of molecular reproduction. More recent book titles are(2008).

Webinar: "Improving the welfare of mice in ageing studies"

22-04-2021 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm Add to iCal
Online
Location
Zoom
Lead

Routine handling of laboratory animals is an essential but frequently ignored component of animal experiments that has considerable potential to influence anxiety and aversion to human approach and contact. The aim of these CPD webinars (Continuing professional development) is to follow the legal requirements for maintenance and demonstration of competence in laboratory animal science, and to facilitate the implementations of the 3R’s in routine animal work.

Content

"Improving the welfare of mice in ageing studies"

Abstract

An increasing number of ageing mice are required to meet the demand of more age-related studies. The presentation will review some of the common issues involved when caring for aged mice. Difficulties in aged mouse colony management include determining the signs which should be monitored and what humane end points should be used. The threshold for regulation cannot be based solely on the age of the animal and needs to take account of any age-related adverse effects and signs. The threshold for the commencement of enhanced monitoring will be discussed together with the various factors that may influence this. Behavioural assessments and monitoring should bear in mind the fragility of older mice and not cause additional harms.

This presentation is an opportunity to raise awareness and to encourage humane handling of mice i.e. the use of tunnel or cupping methods and to apply husbandry refinements aimed at mitigation of any age-related signs. The overall aim is to raise awareness of the considerations for studies using ageing mice and to help promote consistency in the management of ageing mouse colonies.

"The evidence base for refined methods of handling mice"

Abstract

Routine handling of laboratory animals is an essential but frequently ignored component of animal experiments that has considerable potential to influence anxiety and aversion to human approach and contact.

Studies from our laboratory have shown that the method used to pick up laboratory mice is critical. Picking up mice by the tail induces aversion and high anxiety (even if their weight is supported), whereas use of handling tunnels or scooping mice up on the open hand (cupping) leads to voluntary approach to handling, low anxiety and acceptance of physical restraint. These responses appear to be quite consistent across strains and sexes of mice, across different laboratories, across handlers with different levels of prior experience, and whether animals are handled in the light or dark phases of the diurnal cycle. Mice picked up using a handling tunnel or scooped on the open hand also show substantially improved performance in a simple behavioural test involving the discrimination of novel test stimuli, whereas those picked up by the tail show little willingness to explore a test arena and investigate test stimuli.

Other laboratories have shown improved glucose tolerance and reduced stress hormone levels when using non-aversive handling methods, or improved responsiveness to sucrose rewards, compared to tail handled mice. In this webinar, I will review the evidence currently available on the responses of mice to different methods for routine handling.

Prof. Jane L. Hurst, Mammalian Behaviour & Evolution Group, Institute of Integrative Biology, University of Liverpool, UK.

Professor Hurst joined the University of Liverpool as the William Prescott Chair of Animal Science in 1998. As joint head of the University’s Mammalian Behaviour and Evolution Group, her research focuses on scent communication in mammals, rodent behaviour and ecology, and laboratory animal welfare. Pioneering work led by Professor Hurst over the past 10 years showed that a simple change to how laboratory mice are handled can make a big difference to their welfare and has since led to the widespread uptake of her non-aversive handling methods across the research sector. The important impact of this change has been recognised through the NC3Rs 2010 prize, the SVG 2019 prize and an OBE in 2020.

Currently, she is a Board member of the UK National Centre for 3Rs (NC3Rs), Deputy Chair of the Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) Appointments Board, and a member of the Royal Society’s Research Appointment Panel.
