Renew and adequation of the facilities on research barn in large animal.


The building infrastructure of some laboratories and places that house research animals (vivariums) are quite old and have been suffering natural weathering. The set of research stalls where large animals are kept, especially equine species used in projects in the areas of Surgery, Clinics and Reproduction, is quite deteriorated, with problems in the building, hydraulic and electrical structure, and does not have a work area and a place for food storage. The last time this structure was remodeled was 26 years ago, with resources from the Fapesp infrastructure line in 1995 (Fapesp Process 1995/7304-5). The computer lab, which gives support to research projects in Animal Science, presents serious damages on the roof and walls with cracks, the computers available do not meet the demands because they are too old and obsolete. These places support the development of dozens of research projects that result in scientific articles published annually in national and international journals, contributing to the scientific production of the university unit and the formation of masters and doctors. For the reasons above, the Board of Trustees of FMVZ approved the use of the Institutional Technical Reserve (ITR) for remodeling and adequacy of the stalls for research in large animals and the purchase of computers for the computer laboratory. The building infrastructure of the laboratory and the acquisition of the remaining computers (n=25) are in public tender process by FMVZ. The application of the ITR in the items mentioned will enable better laboratory conditions, adequacy of the vivarium for animal housing and easiness for the development of experimental projects of researchers and graduate students, impacting on the scientific productivity of our University Unit.
