Red Itinerary: LAS Applied Research

- Genetically altered models. Why research does not always translate

- Aging: care and management of aged animals (rat, mouse, zebrafish, NHP)

- Neurodegenerative diseases: design of shared units

- Neurological disorders: phenotyping for models of Alzheimer, Parkinson (NHP) and Down Syndrome

- Severity assessment and endpoints in disease models

- Experimental models and the microbiota

- Discovery and toxicology: alternative methods (preliminary assays to reduce the use of lab animals)

- Cardiovascular models: refinement in experimental surgery in large animals

- Use of stem cells in disease animal models

- Experimental models for the study of metabolic diseases

- Data sharing

- Managing genetically altered colonies
