Uppsala University Behavioral Facility
The Uppsala University Behavioral Facility (UUBF) is a non-profit core facility, part of the research infrastructure supported by strategic funding of the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy. The facility was established in 2011. We have a close collaboration with the University veterinarians and aim to refine methods and reduce the number of animals used in studies.
UUBF strives to be a resource for research groups at Uppsala University as well as external clients working with laboratory animal research. To this end, UUBF provides support for planning, performing, analysing and interpreting behavioural studies in mice, rats and fish. We can furthermore advise you on available alternatives to animal experiments for your field of research. Through our funding by the Disciplinary Domain of Medicine and Pharmacy, we can offer access to a wide variety of laboratory facilities as well as equipment to carry out behavioural research at a high standard and low cost.
Our staff has extensive experience in different areas of behavioural animal research and can help you with designing your studies, writing ethical applications as well as statistical analysis and interpretation of your experiments. Furthermore, we provide a number of standard operating procedures for tests available in our facilities that are available to members of Uppsala University as well as external clients. Do not hesitate to contact us to learn more about the resources and support we can provide.
UUBF's offices are located at the Biomedical Centre (BMC) in Uppsala. Feel free to send us an email in case you have any question or want to book a personal meeting with our staff. Write Email to UUBF
