The 1st KALAS-JALAS joint symposium entitled with “Marmoset models in biomedical research” will be also held on July 17 and several young speakers from AFLAS will participate in this international symposium. In addition, Lab animal equipments, devices, and facilities from Lab animal-related industries will be 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.
