The International Society for Transgenic Technologies (ISTT) is pleased to announce that has been approved as a new AAALAC’s Member Organization after our application we registered in July, with the massive support of ISTT members. AAALAC stands for the “Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care”. AAALAC International is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through voluntary accreditation and assessment programs. AAALAC’s Member Organizations are a select group of prestigious scientific, professional and educational groups with an interest in advancing biomedical research and animal well-being in science. Each Member Organization appoints a representative to serve on the AAALAC International Board of Trustees.
