For more than 35 years, the Croatian Laboratory Animal Science Association (CroLASA) has been gathering scientists, experts and other professionals who use laboratory animals in their work. The Society currently has more than 60 members.
The Society has been established with the purpose of gathering and continuous scientific and professional training of biomedical scientists who use laboratory animals in their work as well as laboratory animal breeders and producers of food and equipment for laboratory animals. The Society activities lie in the fields of education, science and research, as well as protection of environment and nature, i.e. animal protection. The Society aims to bring together and connect with similar associations in the world in order to foster the exchange of knowledge and experience, and to get better insights into current world affairs in the field of laboratory animal science.
