Dr. Cindy Buckmaster and Dawn Hidenfelter are psyched about attending The Annual CALAS/ACSAL Symposium in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan from June 22-25! The Symposium is a unique 2.5 day event that includes networking and social events, 50+ exhibit booths, a dedicated Trainers’ Lunch, 2 Keynote presentations from highly sought-after speakers, and 2 full days of pre-symposium hands-on workshops. The Symposium is the premier networking and education event for the Canadian Laboratory Animal Science community, attracting  300 – 500 participants from across Canada and internationally. We’d love to see you there!

The Conference theme is ” Lighting the Path to Discovery” for:

  • Refinement: animal care, health, welfare, and refinements in zebrafish and other aquatic species
  • Refined and advanced methods of anesthesia and analgesia in animal-based research
  • New technologies, techniques, and innovative methodologies in animal-based research
  • Developments and systems for compassion fatigue support and employee well-being
  • Use of 3Rs and communication tools towards improved transparency regarding animal-based research 

See you in Canada!
