Caring for Animals

Dr. Gary Borkowski ('87)
As the global director of the AAALAC, the world’s most influential organization in the improvement of animal welfare of research animals, Gary Borkowski oversees the accreditation program. Although he has only been with AAALAC for a few years, the humane treatment of animals in science has long been a passion for Borkowski. “I’m pretty open with what I do as a laboratory animal veterinarian,” he said. “There must be an openness and transparency in what we as animal medical researchers do. My job is to help the greater public understand what labs do to take care of their animals.”
