Animal Care

The NIF Bioimaging Facility is committed to maintaining the highest standards of animal care and welfare. We operate in collaboration with Animal Care Services who provide pre and post imaging care.

All animal imaging procedures require approval from the UWA Animal Ethics Committee which incorporates a pre-submission discussion with both Animal Care and Veterinary Services and Bioimaging Facility staff.
