Venue: Virtual Online School
Date: 9 & 10 December 2021
Goals of the School:
In spite of the various advances in in vitro and computer modelling methods that allow for the replacement of animals, characterising the physical presentation and behaviour of an animal is integral to understanding the underlying bases of the disease being modelled or neurochemical agents being tested. Hence, being able to effectively phenotype an animal model is an important tool for researchers. This proposed 2-day school draws expertise from various institutions in Singapore, such as the National University of Singapore (NUS), Yale-NUS, Duke-NUS and Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), with the aim to expand the participants’ understanding of various aspects related to using animal models for basic biomedical research, and enable them to employ these techniques in their future research. Participants will be introduced to a simple, invertebrate model, the drosophila, which can be easily deployed with minimal infrastructure, as well as increasingly complex animal models that require more infrastructure, such as the zebrafish and mouse.
