The Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare, the American College of 
Laboratory Animal Medicine (ACLAM), and the Southern Illinois 
University School of Medicine will co-sponsor the ACLAM Forum 2003, 
"Induced Animal Models of Human Disease (Before, Beyond, and Besides 
Transgenics)."   The symposium will be held May 14-17, 2003 in Fort 
Myers, Florida.  The four half-day sessions will be on the use of 
induced animal models that are problematic from the perspectives of 
protocol review and animal management, and provide a balanced 
consideration of animal well-being in light of the need to address 
scientific questions that will forward the goal of eventually reducing 
human pain and suffering.
