TEATIME Advanced Training School

Advanced Training Workshop in the use of homecage technologies to monitor rodents

The TEATIME Advanced Training School will be held at i3S (the Institute for Research and Innovation in Health, University of Porto) in Oporto, Portugal from 10th to 14th July 2023.

The target group of this training workshop are Masters, PhD and post-doctoral students, with at least 2 years hands-on experience in rodent behavioural research.  

The workshop will provide instruction on the use of home-cages including: experimental design, psychiatric and cognitive assessment, metabolic measurement within home-cages and the construction of a “homemade” home-cage from basic materials or existing components.  There will be a particular emphasis on data analysis with two afternoon workshops devoted to this. Workshop members will be expected to have sufficient experience within rodent behavioural research and data analysis to be able to contribute to discussions. All members will be asked to give a short presentation of their work relevant to the delegates on Day 1 of the course.
