Advances in the Three Rs (Replacement, Reduction, and Refinement) 

Joanne Zurlo, Center for Alternatives to Animal Testing, John Hopkins

This talk will focus on the upcoming World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences, which will be held in August 2017, highlighting advances in the Three Rs (Replacement, Reduction and Refinement). Topics will include discussion of Tox 21 and the Human Toxome Project, advances in cell culture, the marriage of bioengineering with cellular and molecular biology and further insights into animal behavior as relates to animal welfare. 



Bridging the Gap between AALAS Branches and National AALAS

Laura Conour, Princeton University and Current AALAS President

As current AALAS President, Dr. Conour will discuss exciting updates from AALAS and the connection between National AALAS and its Branches.
Lauren will address the following questions:

·       How might the branches and national AALAS benefit from a closer, more solidified relationship?

·       What could the branches do to further support national AALAS?

·       What can national AALAS do to provide services to the branches in order to foster a grassroots initiative in support of our mission to advance responsible laboratory animal care and use to benefit people and animals?
