Researchers depend on laboratory animals to advance our understanding of human health and disease. New treatments for cancers, new diagnostic methods, and a better understanding of managing disease all depend on animal models. Those animals depend on caretakers to keep them healthy, in a safe and clean environment. Recently, the COVID-19…
