13. HOW MANY ANIMAL EXPERIMENTS ARE BEING CONDUCTED?

In 2018, 3859 animals were used in animal experiments at Hasselt University. The majority of these animals were mice.

For each experiment, a statistical analysis is done a priori in order to determine the number of animals that is needed. We strive to obtain a statistically relevant result while using the lowest possible number of animals.
