Management of Laboratory Animal Facility

Animal experimentation is an essential component of biomedical and behavioral research, a critical part of efforts to prevent, cure, and treat a vast range of ailments. Investigators are using animals to learn about the most widespread diseases of the age, including heart disease and cancer, as well as to gain basic knowledge in genetics, physiology, and other life sciences. Our major activity is to breed, maintain and supply quality research animals to in-house researchers and also to National & International institutions, as per CPCSEA guidelines. We also ensure the humane, responsible, and scientifically or instructionally sound use of animals at the institutional animal facility.
