Establishment of SLALAS
It was established in December 2012. The main objective of establishing this association is to bring the scientists/researchers who are engaged or who have an interest in the field of laboratory animal science in Sri Lanka, together under one umbrella.
The vision of SLALAS is to advance scientific understanding and knowledge of the use, care and welfare of laboratory animals and promote the 3R concept (refinement, reduction and replacement) and also to be the apex body in Laboratory Animal Science in Sri Lanka.
To achieve the vision, we propose to promote and coordinate the development of Laboratory Animal Science among academic and research institutions of Sri Lanka by supporting all aspects of Laboratory Animal Science practices and conducting educational activities and training sessions.
