MD Biosciences

The effect of the housing environment and handling on behavior assays

An excerpt from MD Biosciences publication in the Autumn 2022 issue of Göttingen Minipigs Magazine. 

 

MD Biosciences operates a neuroscience research facility that was purpose-built for translational research and includes dedicated wings for in vitro and biomarker assays, rodent and translational pig research. Since the opening of the research facility in 2021, we have been monitored the effect of this purpose-built facility on behavior assays and compared it to data from standard housing facilities. Findings are ongoing, however an intermediate finding of results has been published.
