    The Biomedical Research Laboratory at Aalborg University Hospital (North) is an offering to those who need to use experimental animals as part of their research or in connection with their education.

    In the Biomedical Research Laboratory, as a researcher, you can use laboratories and perform experiments on pigs, rabbits, rats and mice - or you can, as a student, practice your surgical skills in decorated operating rooms. Six highly qualified veterinary technicians, two surgical nurses and a veterinarian are employed on site. They take care of the animals and are available to the laboratory's guests.
    The laboratory is not for general lending, but if you are interested in an agreement, you can contact Benedict Kjærgaard (
