CoMO organizes annual seminars from the current topics for researchers who use animals in their studies.
"Best practice in pre-clinical animal research: Navigating the guidelines and principles “
Preclinical studies using animal models are an integral part of biomedical research. However, their value is dependent on their scientific validity and reproducibility, which are, in turn, dependent on rigorous study design and reporting. This symposium aims to update on the guidelines developed and recommended for achieving robust research output.
