Institute presentation

The SYstematic Review Centre for Laboratory animal Experimentation (SYRCLE) is part of the department for Health Evidence at the Radboud university medical center. Our vision is a world in which any animal-based research conducted is justified, rigorous and of high translational value. Our mission is to develop, apply and disseminate the methodology of systematic reviews of animal studies to advance responsible animal-based research (see https://vimeo.com/142124487 for our videoscribe) Team members at SYRCLE are experts in performing systematic reviews of animal studies in the fields of toxicology, cardiovascular science and anesthesiology. We develop specialized methodology to support and optimize the conduct of systematic reviews of animal studies, especially risk of bias assessment, meta-analysis and evidence integration. We also provide hands-on training and coaching in systematic reviews to fellow researchers in 10+ countries world-wide, and have developed an e-learning module on preclinical systematic reviews (see www.syrcle.nl for more information)
