Abstract : The Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources (MAR) is a component of the Commission on Life Sciences (CLS), National Research Council (NRC). The NRC is the operating arm of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), a private, nonprofit organization that was created in 1863 by congressional charter to serve as an official advisor to the federal government on questions of science and technology. Partial support for ILAR has been provided for many years from the Department of the Army to enable ILAR to its mission. Founded in 1952, ILAR has become recognized nationally and internationally as a leader in developing and making available to the biomedical and laboratory animal science communities guidelines for animal care, breeding, and use; descriptions of animal models for human diseases and physiological processes; and reports on specific issues of scientific and humane use of laboratory animals. ILAR's mission is to help improve the availability, quality, care, and humane and scientifically valid use of laboratory animals....
