Lunch & Learn Webinar: The Ethical Use of Animals in Research


From the development of insulin to the latest life-prolonging cancer drugs and virtually every major medical advance in between, animals have played vital roles in scientific research that have led to cures and treatments for a wide array of human and animal diseases. Researchers and everyone involved in research with animals – including veterinarians and animal-care technicians – are sincerely concerned about the welfare and ethical use of animals that are part of the research process.

The Animal Compliance Office invites the McGill community to a Lunch & Learn webinar on the "Ethical Use of Animals in Research." This virtual event will take place on Tuesday, October 4 at 12:00 p.m. and will be presented by Jennifer Henri, Animal Care Training Administrator.

Participants will learn about the Canadian Council on Animal Care (CCAC), myths surrounding animals in research, the guiding principles for the ethical use of animals in research, and general concepts of animal welfare.

A Q&A period at the end of the webinar will allow open dialogue between the presenters and the participants to discuss ethics in animal research.

Registration closes on Monday, October 3.
