ILAR Journal Volume 49(1): Noninvasive Bioimaging of Laboratory Animals at http://dels.nas.edu/ilar_n/ilarjournal/49_1/html/

Posted: December 21, 2007
The imaging modalities available for use with laboratory animals provide a means to explore the molecular mechanism of several diseases, minimize many of the limitations of static tissue-based techniques, and, most importantly, decrease the numbers of animals required. In fact, depending on the application, it is possible to reduce the number of animals required per study by as much as 80% to 90%. This feature is noteworthy because, perhaps unique to the ILAR Journal, there is an intentional effort to publish reviews that include considerations specifically relevant to animal care and use.



OLAW Welcomes Dr. Kim Taylor

As a member of the Office of Extramural Research (OER), NIH OD, OLAW participated in the launch of a family of redesigned websites on August 1, 2007. Designed with a user-friendly layout, new search tools, and updated links and resources, the OLAW webpage combines valued resources from our previous webpage with new features to make it easier for you to communicate with us. OLAW has added a second, easier to remember, url: http://OLAW.nih.gov. (The old one still works, too: http://grants.nih.gov/grants/olaw/olaw.htm.) OLAW welcomes comments on the new website design. OLAW also welcomes comments on any of its policy guidance. Comments may be submitted to OLAW by email at: olaw@od.nih.gov (please insert the title of the specific guidance document in the subject field), or by mail to:
