In order to give students the most accurate view of Animal Biotechnology, especially Reproductive Technology and Regenerative Biomedicine, Preservation Dangerous Animal, laboratory activities included both general presentation and actual experimental procedures to help them understand their interests, inspiration and future orientation.

Most notably, the students were given the opportunity to observe intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI) and somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT) cloning done by Lab members and  Prof. Nguyen Van Thuan.
