There are still a few places left on the next FRAME Training School in Experimental Design and Statistical Analysis. The school will be held in Voss, Norway, in February, 2016. Closing date for applications is November 15.
The schools are aimed at young scientists who use animals in their research. Scientists do not always receive adequate training in experimental design as part of their undergraduate and post graduate studies. When scientists carry out experiments it is vitally important they are well designed, otherwise they may waste resources or give the wrong answers. This is especially serious when animals are used.
The schools provide:
- Basic training in experimental design techniques
- Instruction in statistical methods to ensure data is analysed correctly
- Advice on legal and ethical considerations when using experimental animals
- Opportunity to evaluate procedures before putting them into practice
- Chance to meet with other researchers to discuss ideas and exchange expertise
- Practical design skills
Participants gain a better understanding of how to properly design and effectively analyse their experimental programmes so that they can go on to produce higher quality science, which has made the most efficient use of a minimum number of animals.
The school offers direct access to expert tutors, practical experience in designing experiments, networking opportunities, useful learning materials, meals and accommodation, all for one inclusive, value-for-money price.
- Gain enhanced competency, training and skills in designing experiments
- Earn 10 CPD accreditation points
- Improve your data through your applied skills
