Open Labs

Following last year’s enthusiastic response to Open Labs, animal units across the country will once again be throwing  open their doors for Open Labs 2015.

Launching in Science Week, March 23, we have ten animal houses ready to show school groups exactly what goes on in an animal unit, how the animals are cared for and why they used.

We will be running visits in:

- Imperial College London

- University College London

- Strathclyde University

- Bristol University

- MRC Mary Lyons Centre

- MRC Centre for Macaques

- Leicester University

- Bath University

- Cardiff University

- Manchester University

Because animal units are  such specialised scientific workspaces numbers have to be limited and we are fully booked for  this year, but we plan to hold Open Labs again in 2016 with even more centres taking part, so please let us know if your school would be interested in taking part by emailing John Meredith at
