Elevating the standards of laboratory animal science to enhance animal welfare and excellence in research.
Since 1962, CALAS has been working to eliminate inhumane and unnecessary use of animals in research. Working with a membership comprised of veterinarians, physicians, researchers, administrators and technicians, CALAS has achieved many successes in improving the care of laboratory animals in research, teaching and testing.
As a not-for-profit organization with approximately 900 members*, CALAS strives to:
¡ñ To advance the knowledge, skills and status of those who work with laboratory animals
¡ñ To improve the standards for laboratory animal care and research
¡ñ To provide a forum for the exchange and dissemination of knowledge regarding animal care and research
Both the National Office and Regional Chapters achieve these goals through:
¡ñ Registry for Laboratory Animal Technicians
¡ñ Continuing Education and Training Programs
¡ñ Annual National Symposia
¡ñ Annual awards recognizing education, technical and scientific improvements
¡ñ Bi-monthly Members Magazine
National office: firstname.lastname@example.org
