Laboratory Animal Refinement & Enrichment Forum (LAREF)

The purpose of the Laboratory Animal Refinement & Enrichment Forum (LAREF) is the exchange of experiences about ways to improve the conditions under which animals in laboratories are housed and handled. This electronic discussion forum is intended to serve the international animal care community in its attempt to promote animal welfare and improve scientific methodology by avoiding or eliminating husbandry-related stress situations. The forum is open to animal care personnel, animal technicians, students, attending veterinarians and researchers who have or had first-hand experience in the care of animals kept in laboratories. If you want to join the group, please send a message to joannam@awionline.org indicating your:

  • name,
  • professional affiliation,
  • professional experience with animals in research (your role, the species you work with, and the number of years of experience),
  • professional interests as they pertain to this discussion group.
