PRESIDENTIAL REPORT

We hope you enjoyed the 3Rs webinar “Applications in Developing Technologies for Rodent Health Surveillance.” I look forward to many more! 

I was looking at the goals the leadership team had set at the beginning of the year, before all our lives changed by the pandemic. I was astonished at the movement and progression there has been in the organization, in spite of all the obstacles that we have all had to deal with. Due to the unwavering dedication of Megan our Fellow, and the leadership team, we have crushed the goals and we look forward to the momentum of the organization moving forward into more collaborations and partnerships to further the reach and advancement of the 3Rs principles.

As the weather begins to change and I wake up to the brisk mornings, I feel an invigorating energy within. We are moving and reacting to all the wonderful things ahead. 

How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment to improve the world - Anne Frank
