Abstract : This grant provides partial core support for the Institute of Laboratory Animal Resources (ILAR), which is a component of the commission on Life Sciences (CLS), one of the principal operating units of the National Academy of Sciences (Academy). The Academy operates as a private, non-profit institution charged with providing advice to agencies of the federal government on matters of science and technology. ILAR provides information on the selection, care, and use of biologicals and animals used in research, testing, and education. ILAR's best known report is the Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (Guide), of which the 6th revision was initiated during this grant year. oversight for the work of ILAR is provided by ILAR Council, a standing committee of 13 scientists, veterinarians, and ethicists, which meets three times each year to review all aspects of ILAR's program and develop new initiatives. ILAR has two types of programs: core and special projects. This grant supports the core program, consisting of the meetings and activities of Council and those of staff in the publishing of ILAR News, in the activities of the Animal Models and Genetic Stocks Information Program, and International Activities.
