The Fondazione Guido Bernardini (FGB) provides a wide range of training activities and scientific events. The programs of FGB courses and scientific events are designed to:

  • Enhance knowledge and competence in laboratory animal care and use
  • Inform about new topics and emerging technologies in LAS
  • Stimulate lively discussion and experience exchange with teachers and between attendees

The training programs are re-evaluated and assessed each year by the Scientific Committee to incorporate changes to improve the quality of the education provided. Laboratory animal professionals are encouraged to co-operate with the Scientific Committee to design specific professional modules and custom-made training programs.
