pportunity for both partners,” said Szczepan Baran, V.M.D., M.S., president of Veterinary Bioscience Institute, and an internationally recognized expert in surgical research. “It leverages the complementary strengths and interests of the two institutions and represents an innovative new framework for development of virtual, internet-based and hands-on surgical training and competency assessment, which not only fits with VBI’s mission –promoting the three R’s; refinement, reduction and replacement of animal models– but it also helps solve the most pressing challenges of access to high quality, precise surgical training within the laboratory animal and life sciences fields.”
“This partnership is committed to advancing surgical education and biomethodology training to meet the needs of personnel in the laboratory animal and life sciences fields. The long-term goal of this collaboration is to develop a one-stop-shop surgical and biomethodology training resource for the laboratory animal, life sciences and veterinary communities,” said Elizabeth Johnson, chief executive officer of Veterinary Bioscience Institute.
VBI staff will also initiate a monthly seminar series starting January 2013 at the Wake Forest Biotech Place, a state-of-the-art multipurpose biotechnology research and innovation center, presenting topics such as “Using Social Media for Job Hunting and Network Building in the Field of Life Sciences” and “Rodent Laparoscopy: A Significant Refinement for Rodent Abdominal Surgery and Its Application in Models of Neoplastic and Inflammatory Diseases.”
One PTS-VBI project has been completed: a demonstration of the proper techniques to be employed in spaying a dog. The demonstration surgery was a success and the animal has since been adopted as a pet.
