Writing your thesis
In regards to animal experimentation
When publishing a thesis from results gained by use of the Animal Facility, refer to the following paragraph as an example.
All animals were housed under a 12-h dark–light cycle (light from 07:00 to 19:00) at 22 ± 1°C with ad libitum
food and water. The Animal Care and Use Committee of Kumamoto University School of Medicine approved the protocols for animal experiments.
This is to demonstrate that the animals used in the experiment were bred under the following conditions.
- - 12 hour light/dark cycle
- - Room temperature of 22 ± 1°C
- - Water and food freely available
- - The animal experiments have been approved by the Kumamoto University Animal Care and Use Committee
Refer to the following thesis
as a guide.
When facility staff has offered technical support, please list them in your acknowledgments with a statement similar to the following.
We are grateful to members of the Center for Animal Resources and Development in Kumamoto University for their important contributions to the experiments.
We are grateful to Dr. ### in the Center for Animal Resources and Development in Kumamoto University for his(her) important contributions to the experiments.
When there was a significant contribution by facility staff, we ask that you please consider their inclusion as co-authors.
Summaries of published theses
As the Animal Facility is a facility for the support of animal experimentation, documentation is needed in order to evaluate the level of that support. For this, a summary of published theses by researchers who used the facility is necessary.
Use this page
for reference and please send us a list of published theses that involved use of the Animal Facility by the end of each academic year.
Thank you for cooperation.
