Our research looks beyond the moment of the experiment to encompass the whole life cycle of laboratory mice, from breeding to tissue biobanking. This is important because it broadens our attention to the experience of laboratory animals throughout their life
This Exchange took place at the annual Southampton Science and Engineering Festival in 2019, a bustling event that attracted thousands of people to the Highfield Campus of the University of Southampton.
This small colony was the result of our second pilot. These mice were created by members of the Animal Research Nexus team during a meeting in Bristol (hence Bristol Colony) dedicated to our public engagement programme.
