Emory animal research reaccredited by AAALAC
Emory’s animal research program was granted “Continued Full Accreditation” by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC) International. The nonprofit organization promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through a voluntary accreditation program; Emory has been accredited since 1992.

Emory actually has double accreditation from AAALAC; because of the scope and complexity of the University’s research programs, Yerkes undergoes its own review and on-site assessment and has been accredited since 1985.

Research programs undergo AAALAC evaluation every three years, involving an extensive internal review and comprehensive on-site assessment by AAALAC evaluators.
