Dramatic changes in the regulatory, financial, and operating requirements for animal research facilities have occurred in just the last few years. You and your institution need to get up-to-speed on these changes and put in motion new action plans.

Attend this conference to get the details on how leading peer institutions have made a quantum leap forward in cost reduction, operational efficiency, research flexibility, health and safety, and compliance with new technology applications, process improvements, and facility modernizations and upgrades.

At this conference you’ll learn what’s being done and achieved and the facility features, planning metrics, investment rationales, and lessons learned for:

  • Low cost operations
  • Increased utilization of existing space
  • Renovations and upgrades
  • Adaptable space for multiple species and multiple programs
  • New opportunities for room, rack, and cage efficiencies
  • Sustainability through reduced water and energy use
  • Improved maintenance processes
  • Increased staff productivity
  • High efficiency, low maintenance MEP systems
  • Long-term operational planning

You’ll also examine first-hand the latest offerings in efficiency-raising equipment and technologies for animal housing, automation, air handling systems and controls, waste processing, surfaces and materials, specialty furniture, decontamination, and more.

Attend this conference as a team (managing veterinarians, research program directors, facility managers, capital project managers, engineering managers, space planners, and financial managers) to build consensus and momentum on the right direction and actions critical to the success of your institution's research program.

PLUS! Pre-conference workshops:
- The Fundamentals of Planning and Design of Animal Research Labs and MEP Systems

- Physical Plant Expectations and Certification Guidance from AAALAC
