Hackensack Meridian Health and the Center for Discovery and Innovation have been accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC). The distinction shows responsible animal care and use for research.
AAALAC, the private, nonprofit organization promotes the humane treatment of animals in science. The accreditation program evaluates organizations that use animals in research, teaching or testing. Those that meet or exceed AAALAC standards are awarded accreditation.
The team responsible for the accreditation recently gathered to display the plaque they received from AAALAC.
