Laboratory of Laboratory Animal Medicine

Laboratory of Laboratory Animal Medicine

Our lab of Laboratory Animal Medicine is at the forefront of developing and refining animal models for a comprehensive understanding of human and animal diseases. Our primary focus lies in the creation and utilization of innovative animal models, which play a crucial role in advancing medical research and veterinary practices. By leveraging histological, immunohistochemical, electron microscopical, and molecular biological techniques, we meticulously evaluate the pathogenesis of spontaneous diseases and the efficacy of these developed models. This approach ensures both the advancement of medical research and the enhancement of animal welfare.


In alignment with our commitment to animal welfare and the integrity of our research, we adhere to the 3R’s principle proposed by Russell—Reduction in the numbers of animals used, Replacement with non-animal techniques, and Refinement of techniques. This ethical framework guides our efforts to minimize the use of animals in experiments and to explore alternative methods that can reduce or replace animal testing, thereby promoting the responsible conduct of scientific research.


By prioritizing the development of new animal models and adhering to the principles of the 3Rs, our laboratory aims to produce groundbreaking alternatives to traditional animal experiments. Our dedication to these principles not only supports the advancement of science but also ensures the ethical treatment and welfare of laboratory animals.
