About the ILAR Roundtable

ILAR Roundtable At-a-Glance

Mission:
To facilitate on-going discussion and information exchange on topics of interest to those involved with the science and welfare of using laboratory animals.

Vision:
That the discussion and information exchange among  scientists and professionals working with laboratory animals will lead to more science-informed approaches to improved animal care and use and further the development and implementation of techniques that refine, reduce or replace the use of laboratory animals when scientifically valid and regulatory compliant.
