Mission:

The Network of Laboratory Animal Coordinators’ goal is to enhance communication between animal research laboratory personnel, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, and the Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine. NLAC activities will support the University’s mission to expand the body of knowledge and teach individuals involved in all levels of animal research by providing a forum for the open exchange of ideas and an information network for policies, procedures, and regulations.

Meetings

The NLAC will hold quarterly forums promoting open communication and discussion among laboratory animal coordinators, researchers, Office of Animal Care and Use, and Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine.
