The Experimental Design Assistant (EDA) is a free online software that helps researchers design robust in vivo experiments that are more likely to give reproducible results. This interactive virtual workshop on using the EDA will be helpful for anyone involved in planning and designing experiments or teaching experimental design.

During the session Dr Esther Pearl (NC3Rs Programme Manager for Experimental Design) will give a live demonstration of the EDA before answering your questions and providing personalised feedback as you design your own experiment.

By the end of the session you will be able to use the EDA to:

  • Design your next experiment.
  • Receive tailored feedback on your experimental plans.
  • Identify statistical analysis methods relevant to your design.
  • Determine an appropriate sample size. 
  • Create a randomisation sequence.
  • Communicate your plans clearly with others, including with colleagues, collaborators, grant and ethical review bodies, and publishers.
