The NC3Rs laboratory mouse aggression crowdsourcing study has now been launched.
The study is open to all technicians working within licensed facilities across the world and the aim is to collect data on the prevalence and triggers of cage aggression in group-housed male mice.
There is more information available on our website where you can view a video tutorial which explains the project and can also download the data collection template. Comprehensive instructions on how to collect the required data are included in the tutorial.
If this is of interest, we recommend that data collection is started by 23 October 2017 at the latest to ensure that technicians can complete the data collection tasks in full. Data must be submitted to the NC3Rs by 30 November 2017.
Participating technicians can claim up to ten hours of Continual Professional Development (CPD) credits from the Institute of Animal Technology.
