AAALAC简介


AAALAC international全称Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care international(国际实验动物管理评估与认证协会),成立于1965年,是权威的评估和认证动物饲养和使用标准的国际机构,它要求在生物科学、医药领域人道、科学地对待动物。

Aaalac International是一家私人、非营利组织,通过自愿认证和评估项目来促进科学对动物的人道待遇。在47个国家有超过1000家公司、大学、医院、政府机构和其他研究机构取得AAALAC认证,表明他们的承诺,负责动物护理和使用。这些机构自愿参加AAALAC的计划,除了遵守当地、州和联邦法律来规范动物研究。一些获得AAALAC认可的机构包括斯隆-凯特林癌症中心,圣犹德儿童研究院。美国红十字会和美国国立卫生研究院。

What is AAALAC?

AAALAC International is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through voluntary accreditation and assessment programs.

More than 1,000 companies, universities, hospitals, government agencies and other research institutions in 47 countries have earned AAALAC accreditation, demonstrating their commitment to responsible animal care and use. These institutions volunteer to participate in AAALAC's program, in addition to complying with the local, state and federal laws that regulate animal research.

Some of the institutions that have earned AAALAC accreditation include the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, The American Red Cross, and the National Institutes of Health.


为什么AAALAC的角色重要?


对一些动物研究来说,这是一个有争议的话题。但像动物福利场中的其他人一样,AAALAC支持使用动物来推进医学和科学,当没有非动物替代品时,当它以伦理和人道的方式完成时。

当动物被使用时,AAALAC与机构和研究人员合作,作为进步和动物福祉之间的桥梁。这是通过AAALAC的自愿认证过程完成的,研究项目表明它们符合法律所要求的最低标准,并且也将在动物护理和使用方面取得额外的进展。

这样,AAAALAC International就是科学和负责任的动物关怀连接的地方。


Why is AAALAC's role important?


For some, animal research is a controversial topic. But like others in the animal welfare arena, AAALAC endorses the use of animals to advance medicine and science when there are no non-animal alternatives, and when it is done in an ethical and humane way.

When animals are used, AAALAC works with institutions and researchers to serve as a bridge between progress and animal well-being. This is done through AAALAC's voluntary accreditation process in which research programs demonstrate that they meet the minimum standards required by law, and are also going the extra step to achieve excellence in animal care and use.


In this way, AAALAC International is where science and responsible animal care connect.
