Central Animal Research Facility

Message from In-Charge


It is my pleasure to briefly introduce you to the state-of-the-art Central Animal Research Facility (CARF) at RAK Medical & Health Sciences University (RAKMHSU). The CARF is committed to ensuring the humane care and use of small animals (currently, Wistar rats only) associated with the research and teaching programs. The CARF-RAKMHSU meets all requirements of research and ethics committees and ensures compliance with national and international regulations, and guidelines governing the care, use, and housing of animals used in research and teaching. Our responsibility is to encourage student & faculty investigators using experimental animals to design and perform their experimental procedures based on relevance to human or animal health, advancement of knowledge, or for the good of society. We follow our Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) for Rodent Daily Care, Rodent Husbandry, Estrous Cycle Assessment, Breeding Colony Management, Blood Collection Volume & Frequency, and Research Animal Acquisition. We have an agreement with the Waste Management Agency, Public Services Department- Government of Ras Al Khaimah for the collection and disposal of biomedical wastes as per their guidelines (bags with color-coded tags). The CARF’s prime purpose is to provide centralized expertise in breeding, and caring for experimental animals to support biomedical research and teaching.
