We offer a range of workshops on Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Animal Studies.
Introduction to Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis of Animal Studies
Through a mix of lectures and hands-on practical activities and tutorials across 3 half days, you will learn the major steps required to undertake a systematic review and meta-analysis of preclinical animal studies.

We have summarized the main points of the workshop in this Cheat sheet
Protocol Development for Systematic Review of Animal Studies
This workshop will cover the contents of a transparent and comprehensive preclinical systematic review protocol. It will cover the rationale behind registering your systematic review protocol and where to register. This workshop is aimed at researchers who already have a basic understanding of systematic reviews of animal data.

Critical Appraisal of Animal Studies
This interactive practical workshop will explore study quality and risks of bias, internal and external validity, in scientific publications of animal experiments. Participants will gain hands-on experience critically appraising published animal experiments. For more information, please click here: Critical Appraisal of Animal Studies
You can also learn about Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Animal Studies at your own pace by taking our eLearning course. Take a single module or multiple modules to suit your needs. Each module consists of a combination of self-paced presentations and interactive activities and quizzes, allowing you to go over the materials as many times as you need. Exercises and activites are designed to test your understanding of the materials covered.

15.3 Meta-Analysis Tutorial
>>> Click here to launch the tutorial
We have created a web-based tutorial to complement the workshop: Introduction to Systematic Review & Meta-Analysis of Animal Studies
The web-based app uses R programming language to work through a meta-analysis of animal data but you do not need any previous experience with R to complete the tutorial.
The tutorial uses examples data from the publication:
McCann SK, Cramond F, Macleod MR et al. Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of the Efficacy of Interleukin-1 Receptor Antagonist in Animal Models of Stroke: an Update. Translational Stroke Research 7, 395–406 (2016).
