In-vivo Animal Experimentation Laboratory

This lab is destined to research involving live animals. Use of animals in research may be necessary and/or required to before further experimentation can be carried out in humans.
For example, developed neural interfaces, neural prosthesis system, medical devices must prove to work, to be safe and reliable and compatible with the biology. Also, animal experimentation can be used as a proof of concept of the effect of specific rehabilitation interventions. Finally, many disease models exist that assists us to gain knowledge about e.g. disease development or treatment that we cannot obtain in humans.
Three skilled animal technicians can assist researchers and clinicians with the practical performance of surgical procedures and the housing of animals. It is possible to conduct experiments on small rodents (rats, mice and rabbits) and pigs.
