WBAALAS is the Washington branch of the American Association of Laboratory Animal Science (AALAS) which is dedicated to promoting responsible laboratory animal care. Our membership includes people and institutions statewide that are professionally concerned with the production, care, welfare and study of laboratory animals. We promote fellowship and cooperation among people interested in the mission and philosophy of AALAS and provide a forum for these professionals to meet and discuss the important issues they regularly encounter and recognize leaders in humane animal research methods.
By providing education and support for members of the Washington State research community, our organization strives to create a better quality of life for essential laboratory animals.

Congratulations to the WA branch! We won this year’s Branch Challenge from National AALAS! This award recognizes the branch with the largest increase in members compared to last year, who are also National AALAS members. The WA branch won out of 18 other qualifying branches. Thank you to branch members Dean, Kari, Traci and Andrea for going on stage to accept this award on behalf of the branch at National AALAS in Charlotte, NC. It is because of all our wonderful members that the branch will get to proudly display this banner at local events. Thank you to the members of the WA Branch!
