Special Issue "Laboratory Animals"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2021).
Scientific research using laboratory animals has contributed significantly to the improvement of human health. Despite this fact, everything possible must be done to reduce the number of animals used and to develop alternative methods. When laboratory animals are necessary, it is very important to reduce their suffering and improve their welfare.
For this Special Issue, we welcome original research articles on any aspect of the use of laboratory animals in research as well as those regarding their care and welfare. We will also accept articles about the development of alternative methods to replace laboratory animals. Review articles are also welcome.
