The Veterinary Bioscience Institute's 2012 Year in Review
Date:12/17/2012

Winston Salem, NC (PRWEB) December 17, 2012

It has been a wonderfully productive and incredibly busy year for the Veterinary Bioscience Institute (VBI). VBI has had some major positive changes, not the least of which is the move to the Piedmont Triad Research Park (PTRP) at Wake Forest University in Winston Salem, North Carolina. In addition to VBI’s corporate headquarters move to North Carolina, VBI was able to secure a 4000 square foot GLP facility at the PTRP, enabling them to host various research studies and training under one roof. This will ensure continuity of expertise, a lower overhead for those companies who chose to outsource their studies to VBI, and access to VBI’s network of world-renowned experts to design and implement the most stellar and scientifically sound research experiments.

The employees of VBI, most notably Dr. Szczepan Baran, have continued to publish and present at major regional, national and international meetings. The international meetings included Laboratory Animal Science meetings in China and Switzerland, both of which Dr. Baran was an invited speaker.

2012 was not without its challenges. The economy is still struggling, and unfortunately the pharmaceutical industry and academia saw their training budgets slashed. What is very sad is that when training is slashed, overall costs for research experiments tend to increase, as mistakes are made and inaccurate results are obtained, leading to the repetition of experiments. It has been shown that improved training improves research results by decreasing non-experimental variables, decreases costs of research due to the elimination of avoidable mistakes and most importantly, improves animal welfare. Now that THE GUIDE and the European Union DIRECTIVE has made training a requirement for those research experiments that involve animals, VBI is confident that all members of the biomedical community are going to realize how critical it
