ETRIS: Education & Training Resources in In-Vivo Sciences

Alternative (non-animal) education and training resources

Virtual Pharmacology Lab

Virtual Pharmacology Lab is a searchable repository of over 200 in-vivo pharmacological and physiological data traces, experimental methodologies and self-assessment questions.

The respository includes data traces of the effects of a wide range of pharmacological agents administered either alone, or in combination with, other agents which antagonize or potentiate their actions; animations, images and textual descriptions of the preparations, the experimental methods, and the underlying physiology, pharmacology, pathology; self-assessment questions with answers and feedback. These resources originate from simulations of laboratory experiments involving isolated tissue preparations, in vivo animal preparations and some human experiments.
