Empower your professional self


Achieving professional growth comes from continual goal setting, nurturing of networks and expanding one’s knowledge base to remain ahead of an ever-shifting industry. You will not find a better forum to accomplish this than the Annual Charles River Short Course. From in-depth and thought provoking lectures presented by industry experts to structured peer networking opportunities, the Short Course is the ideal setting for laboratory animal science professionals looking to invest in their careers.

The 2017 Short Course will continue to build on the success of the previous years. New and relevant topics will be incorporated into the agenda, and our community pavilion will expand to offer even more resources and industry-related content.
