How to get started
Depending on whether you are a new or experienced user of our services, there are different things you need to do in order to get started.
If you have not used the Department's services or facilities before, we encourage you to book a meeting with one of our veterinarians for a discussion of your project and the necessary things to do before you can get started.
Topics to be discussed with the veterinarian:
- How and where you can work within AEM's facilities
- Your qualifications
- Which licenses you need for your project
- Your need for access to procedure rooms and scientific equipment
- Your acquisition and possible breeding of experimental animals
To book a meeting, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
After the meeting, you must fill out a project plan form based on the meeting with the veterinarian before you can begin an experiment. In the box to the right, you can download the different types of project plans.
You will also need to fill out the access form in order to gain access to the Department's units as well as create a user account at AEM to order services or animals. If needed, you can see a list of all our forms and requisitions.
If you are an experienced user and need to start a new type of experiment, you will need to fill out a new project plan. We recommend that you meet with one of our veterinarians to talk about your new experiment. To book a meeting with a veterinarian, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
If you consider a meeting to be unnecessary, you can fill out a new project plan without meeting with one of our veterinarians.
Download and fill out one of the project plans below depending on the type of experiment you will be doing.
- Project plan for experiments with mice and rats
- Project plan for experiments with other animals
- Project plan for breeding and rederivation of animals
Please notice that the project plan is only valid for 2 years.
