This course from the Johns Hopkins School of Public Health focuses its substantial intellectual prowess on the topic of improving animal research so that it can meet its empirical goals while maintaining high standards of humane treatment. The 12 audio lectures with accompanying slides are free, and readers may proceed at their own paces. Along the way, they will learn about experimental design, humane endpoints, environmental enrichment, post-surgical care, pain management, and the impact of stress on the quality of data. Readings, which include several books and dozens of journal articles, are available from the landing page, as well as Lecture Materials, including MP4 movies, MP3 audio, and PDF slide presentations to convey the information of the course. While readers who do not have access to a university library system will have trouble finding the recommended journal articles, a great deal of information can be gleaned from the rest of the in-depth course materials.
