The Animal Care and Use Program (ACUP) is hosting a workshop entitled “Instruction in Mouse Handling Techniques 1.0: Restraint and Common Routes of Drug Administration.” This ninety minute workshop provides demonstration and hands-on training for the following: basic restraint, SC and IP injection techniques and euthanasia via CO2 inhalation. This workshop is an excellent opportunity for novices to learn basic techniques for working with mice. Participants will remove mice from their cages and practice one-handed restraint necessary to administer compounds. This workshop is not intended for individuals proficient in handling mice. Individuals must be listed on an IACUC-approved protocol using mice in order to participate in this workshop. Space is very limited; observers /non-animal handlers are discouraged from attending. All participants receive a certificate of completion. Those who do not handle animals during the workshop will not receive a certificate of attendance. We appreciate your cooperation. You will be contacted to request more information (such as, IACUC protocol number on which you are listed) after online registration. You will receive a “confirmation email” after we verify your status on the protocol. A reminder email will be sent about 1 week prior to the training date. You will be informed if you are on the waiting list for a particular session. If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact Donna Tignor at Contact Information: Ms. Donna Tignor (Facilitator), (804) 828-3408
