The National Academies’ Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR) has launched the ILAR Roundtable to stimulate dialogue and provide new pathways to promote the responsible use of animals in science. The ILAR Roundtable provides a forum for researchers and animal care givers from government, industry, and academia to discuss animal welfare in research, and an opportunity to discuss topics ranging from laboratory animal care to experimental design to regulatory issues.
