Understanding the Role of Animals in Biomedical Research

An RARC outreach course for middle and high school students

Area instructors, particularly those teaching biology, veterinary science, or agriculture classes, are invited to schedule a visit to participate in this free outreach course presented by RARC trainers.

Topics covered include the benefits of biomedical research, the ethics of using animals in research, the training required for employees working with research animals, and career opportunities in the laboratory animal field. Students will also participate in an interactive hands-on lab, which can be tailored to fit specific course curricula.

To schedule a visit, contact UW-Madison Campus and Visitor Relations or RARC.
