Welcome to Biological Models Research and Technology (BMRT)!
Laboratory Animal Science is a multidisciplinary area of biomedical research involved in the production and scientific use of animal models. Animal models are as complex as humans in their various systems. This is the main reason they are used as models. This similarity and complexity should be recognized and reminded during the use of these animals.
Despite being used for years; laboratory animal science and animal modeling are recent areas of study. Science recognizes that areas such as animal behavior and wellbeing, genetics, health status, nutrition, and several others can have an impact on results. In the same way, it could have an impact on humans. This similarity shows the importance to conduct scientific studies on laboratory animal science.
Teaching laboratory animal Science, ethical use of animals, outreach activities, development, and validation of alternative methods are also essential areas and will have a special place at Biological Models Research and Technology
Laboratory Animal Science is a very technological area. The construction of new facilities for animal production and use, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning system for the macro and microenvironment, barriers, biosecurity are also part of this area. The biological Models Research and Technology will be open to this and to new areas related to animal models.
Biological Models Research and Technology were born in Brazil, and it is open to all laboratory animal science communities.
