Annual memorial service for animals held
A memorial service for animals was held at BRI conference room on Monday, November 9, 2020.
The campus-wide memorial services are held every year to acknowledge the contribution of animals to excellence in research and teaching at Niigata University. To reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection, this year's memorial service minimized crowing by staggering arrivals and departures of the venue. In total of 192 faculty members and students from BRI, Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Dentistry turned up for laying flowers to show appreciation, comfort the sprit, and console the souls.
Subsequently, Dr Katsuhiko Itagaki from Yokohama National University gave an online talk on "Handling information related to animal experiments under information-disclosure law" to an audience of about 70 people.
