    This basic training program is covering the use of Rodents as animal models in biomedical research. It is composed of theory and hands-on training courses. The theory course is obligatory to all students and researchers who intend to use the laboratory animal research center (LARC) at Qatar University, regardless of previous training they may have had at other organizations. The hands-on course is obligatory only for all personnel who will be handling live animals at LARC. It is our obligation to help researchers and students to be trained and certified to use the laboratory animal at LARC in a humane and responsible manner. This training program will give the trainee a general understanding on the regulations and responsibility in using laboratory animals for research. At the end of each course there will be a written exam. The successful participants will be awarded course completion certificates. A copy of HCULAT certificate should be submitted with research protocols for QU-IACUC approval.
