The 1st KALAS-JALAS joint symposium entitled with “Marmoset models in biomedical research” will be also held on July 17. Several young speakers from AFLAS will participate in this international symposium. In addition, lab animal equipments, devices, and facilities from Lab animal-related industries is exhibited during the symposium.
The symposium will be supported by several institutions, agencies and organizations including KOFST, MAFRA, NIFDS, RDA, IJTO, KCLAM, KMPC, etc. and I would like to thank all those concerned in this symposium.
