Each fall since 1950, the American Association for Laboratory Animal Science has held its annual National Meeting. During the five days of the meeting, members and nonmembers come together to enjoy the workshops, lectures, poster sessions, and exhibits. The program is designed to have topics relevant to the entire membership. Exhibitors have an opportunity to interact with AALAS members from the academic community, research institutions, government organizations, and commercial companies. The AALAS National Meeting is the largest gathering in the world of professionals concerned with the production, care, and use of laboratory animals.
A special spotlight forum for 2020 is devoted to overcoming challenges in LAS. Who among us has not had to deal with a challenge in their work? Whether you are a researcher that has had to change a study design, a manager who has had to figure out how to schedule proper animal care in the midst of a snowpocalypse, or a husbandry technician that developed a better and safer way to transfer animals from one cage to another, this topic applies. We all deal with challenges every day so we challenge you to bring your best forward for the 2020 National Meeting!
Date: October 25 – October 29, 2020
Venue: 2020 AALAS (Charlotte, NC)
