Scotland welcomes the next FRAME Training School

FRAME’s industry accredited Training School in Experimental Design and Statistical Analysis of Bioscience and Biomedical Experiments returns to Scotland in April 2020. This very popular and important event will be held in conjunction with Moredun Research Institute in Edinburgh from 28-30 April 2020.

Each year FRAME in partnership with universities, NGOs and projects delivers training schools in experimental design and statistics to increase awareness among scientists about the need to reduce animal numbers in experiments and to refine procedures. 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 is accredited by the Federation of European Laboratory Animal Science Associations (FELASA) and is accepted as CPD by the Laboratory Animal Science Association (LASA). At the most recent event held at the University of Nottingham in January the course received a very positive audit report from FELASA who felt that ‘The course is given by great teachers on a matter which is rather difficult to explain; it is well structured and comprehensive; it gives a good balance between theory and exercises’.

The course is always popular and receives very positive feedback from participants, with attendees at the most recent course held in collaboration with the University of Nottingham and VetBioNet saying:

This has been a FANTASTIC course in many ways. The topics covered 100% relevant to anyone doing experimental sciences, whether using animal models or not. It has been quite an eye-opening experience after nearly 20 years of scientific career due to the clarity of the concepts discussed here.’

I think that this course should be undertaken by all research students. I wish I had done it during my PhD!
