Veterinary Lab Animal Club

 The mission of the Veterinary Lab Animal Club at Purdue University is to provide learning opportunities, experiences, and resources on the field of laboratory animal medicine beyond the classroom. Through club activities, participating members are expected to gain at least the following:

  • An understanding of the scientific goals, clinical responsibilities, and role of the laboratory animal veterinarian in advancing healthcare for animals and humans
  • An appreciation of the medical care and welfare of animals used in research
  • The fundamental laboratory and clinical skills used in the field

Past activities have included:

  • Wet lab on common rodent procedures
  • Joint club meeting with the One Health club
  • Lecture by Dr. Brianna Gaskill about animal welfare and the laboratory animal medicine field 

This year, we plan on offering more wet labs on animal handling, lectures on laboratory animal medicine in academia and industry, and a field trip to a biomedical research laboratory.
