Research Animal Resources (RAR) provides information and services essential to a quality research environment.
We support the University of Minnesota animal research community by providing access to guidelines, technical expertise, laboratory resources, and hands-on training for performing routine procedures.
RAR has a private listserv known as rar-talk. This listserv supports communication among research and veterinary care staff about issues relating to the use of animals in research and teaching activities.
Topics may include:
- Messages about surplus animals available
- Changes in routine diets
- Changes in regulations
- Requests for help, such as with a technique
- Upcoming RAR training sessions
