Animal Models for Microbiome Research: Advancing Basic and Translational Science: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

The surface of the human body and its mucous membranes are heavily colonized by microorganisms. Our understanding of the contributions that complex microbial communities make to health and disease is advancing rapidly. Most microbiome research to date has focused on the mouse as a model organism for delineating the mechanisms that shape the assembly and dynamic operations of microbial communities. However, the mouse is not a perfect surrogate fo... More >>

Advancing Disease Modeling in Animal-Based Research in Support of Precision Medicine: Proceedings of a Workshop (2018)

An ad hoc planning committee will plan and conduct a public workshop to explore the potential of ongoing and future research in animal models with implications for precision medicine. This workshop will bring together experts on the use of state-of-the-art technologies and technological advances to explore: -- How the design, creation, and analysis of current and next-generation animal models can inform the practice of precision medicine; -...

Transportation of Laboratory Animals: Proceedings of a Workshop (2017)

Transportation of laboratory animals is a challenge, both domestically and globally. The movement of research animals requires coordination, planning, and the presence of trained personnel to ensure their safe and humane transport. This workshop focused on educating the research community, policy administrators, and the general public on the challenges surrounding this topic, as well as providing interactive journey planning exercises to conve...

Design, Implementation, Monitoring, and Sharing of Performance Standards for Laboratory Animal Use: Summary of a Workshop (2015)

This workshop examined critical issues pertaining to the concept of performance standards for laboratory animal use. The workshop brought together those who create and use the standards with those who regulate them, while speakers addressed the challenges of defining, developing, implementing, assessing and validating performance standards. In interactive sessions, participants discussed what should be considered in creating a performanc... More >>

Reproducibility Issues in Research with Animals and Animal Models: Workshop in Brief (2015)

Scientific progress is achieved by robust experiments that generate reliable and reproducible results to be used with confidence by the research community. Recent publications have drawn attention to an apparent and concerning prevalence in the number of peer-reviewed studies that cannot be reproduced, particularly those containing data from experiments using animals and animal models. At this workshop, organized by the ILAR Roundtable... More >>
