ILAR Roundtable’s on the Transportation of Laboratory Animals.

Don’t miss the ILAR Roundtable’s second workshop on the Transportation of Laboratory Animals. September 3-4, 2014.

An National Research Council appointed committee of experts will plan and conduct a public workshop to examine critical issues relating to the transportation of research animals. Invited speakers will address the challenges of transporting laboratory animals humanely and safely to ensure adequate supply for biomedical research in the face of increasing societal opposition to the domestic and international movement of these animals. The event will be webcast. An individually-authored summary of the presentations and discussions at the workshop will be prepared by a designated rapporteur in accordance with institutional guidelines.
