Charles River Director of Research Kathleen Pritchett-Corning and postdoctoral scientist Brianna Gaskill weigh in on the importance of lab mice nesting behavior in Keeping Chilly Lab Mice Warm: Key to Better Science?, a new post on ABC News Medical Unit blog. “The healthier and more ‘normal’ the animal, the better the science,” says Pritchett-Corning. “The better the science, the more likely it is to lead to discoveries and advances that affect human health. It doesn’t matter what kind of animal it is, it deserves the best care we can provide.”
