I'm Verena Reupke and I'm working as a veterinarian at the animal facility
of the Medical University in Göttingen.
In 2010 I finished my studies in veterinary medicine at the University of
Veterinary Medicine in Hannover.
After that I did my doctoral thesis on "The detection of anabolic steroids
in horse urine using a reporter gene assay in yeast cells".
Since October 2011 I'm working at the animal facility of the Medical University
in Göttingen.and since September 2013 I'm the animal protection officer in
I'm involved in the planning of anaesthetic and analgetic protocols for experimental
procedures mainly in mice and rats but also in rabbits and pigs.
My special point of interest is the pain recognition and pain assessment
in laboratory animals.
