The Development of Science-based Guidelines for Laboratory Animal Care: Proceedings of the November 2003 International Workshop.


National Research Council (US) Institute for Laboratory Animal Research.


Washington (DC): National Academies Press (US); 2004.
The National Academies Collection: Reports funded by National Institutes of Health.


Our goal during this workshop is scientifically to find the optimal way to seek and develop science-based guidelines to serve the needs of the animals and to serve the needs of the scientists. To emphasize one key point, the guidelines must be practical and applied wisely through the use of performance standards, an outcomes-driven approach.
