2022 Refinement Grant: Automation, Optimisation and Dissemination of the Mouse Grimace Scale


We will develop, refine, and optimize a new setup that will enable labs all over the world to use the mouse grimace scale to accurately, easily and reliably assess pain in rodents. We will apply cutting-edge machine vision/learning technology to ensure the data collected is of the highest quality. We will collaborate with other labs to directly test the ease of use and transferability of the new setup and aim to increase the reliability and reproducibility of animal welfare monitoring in rodents worldwide
