Central Animal Research Facility

Brief History of Central Animal Research Facility (CARF)

RAK Medical & Health Sciences University's (RAKMHSU) Central Animal Research Facility (CARF) was established in the year 2018 on an area of 2,237 square feet for the breeding, and housing of Wistar rats in addition to four laboratories for various pre- clinical research purposes. Currently, CARF maintains Wistar rats, and in the near future, we will incorporate in-breeding and housing facilities for different strains of genetically modified strains of rodents like BALB/c mice, Sprague Dawley rats, and New Zealand white rabbits. The CARF provides a centralized animal research and technical support facility for researchers in departments/colleges across the University. The holding rooms in the CARF are multi-purpose and designed to be flexible, depending on the needs of the various animals and research paradigms. The veterinary doctor routinely does periodic health monitoring of the animals. In addition, feed and water analyses are carried out periodically for assessing their quality and contamination. A dedicated team of well-qualified and trained scientists/veterinarians and technical assistants, who are experienced in modern methods of animal care, breeding, and husbandry manage the facility.
