March 27, 2018SCAW's 40th Annivsary

SCAW, a well-established and respected organization for the past 40 years, has become a leader in the field of research animal welfare. We’ve persevered despite limited resources and “rocky” economic times, largely due to the help of our Board of Trustees and Institutional Members.

SCAW has organized and sponsored countless conferences, workshops and seminars in these 40 years. SCAW has always offered timely information, not only to the scientific community, but to all of those involved in research animal welfare as part of our ongoing commitment. We look forward to serving the educational needs of the research community for another 40 years! Look for more information on our upcoming online training videos for SCAW Institutional Members.
