Greetings

Dear members of KCLAM, With the rapid growth of the bioindustry, the demand for ethical and scientific animal experiment is increasing. The role and social responsibility of veterinarian with expertise in laboratory animals is expanding. I think that laboratory animal veterinarians are guides that provide researchers with information about their expertise and ethical use. I will proceed with a few main points for Korean College of Laboratory Animal Medicine (KCLAM) to play a pivotal role in the field of biomedical science and animal welfare in Korea.

  1. Establish the basis for the legal status of the laboratory animal veterinarian
  2. Promoting self-esteem and professionalization of DKCLAM
  3. Cooperation with related organizations such as IACLAM, AAALAC, JCLAM and KALAS
  4. Expanding online activities

I will do my best to further strengthen the solid foundation of KCLAM. Please ask for your active interest and participation.

With best regards,
Yang-Kyu Choi
D.V.M., Ph.D., DKCLAM
