Partnership agreement with RWTH International Academy gGmbH in Germany


JANVIER LABS and the RWTH Aachen International Academy have just signed a partnership agreement regarding RWTH Aachen University’s Master of Science in Laboratory Animal Science. This M.Sc. programme underlines RWTH Aachen University’s commitment to the 3R principles, a commitment shared by JANVIER LABS. Within the framework of this partnership, JANVIER LABS, International specialist in the production of murine models for Research and associated services, offers to provide lectures on specific subjects.  

From 12 September 2014, RWTH International Academy will offer a new training programme called MLAS (Master of Science in Laboratory Animal Science).

This two-year programme, entirely in English, is aimed at international doctors, veterinary surgeons or scientists with a relevant degree in biology or biomedicine coupled with professional experience with laboratory animals.

The objective of this new M.Sc. is to reinforce their knowledge and skills in the area of complex animal experimentation for independent research work. The training covers many animal breeds, from rodents to non-human primates.  

By the end of the programme, the trained scientists will be able to plan, conduct, evaluate and optimise complex animal experiments, in order to obtain high-level scientific results whilst respecting animal welfare and the EU 2010/63 directive.

This training programme, leading to a recognised qualification, will mainly be taught through webinars alongside an obligatory week of on-site learning in Aachen per semester.
