The Okayama Association for Laboratory Science, established on December 7, 1982, celebrates its 35th anniversary on December 7, 2017. The association was established to provide opportunities for researchers interested in laboratory animals and animal experiments to assemble beyond the borders of universities, faculties, and institutions to exchange their knowledge and information, as well as help promote their research activities and advancement of community science. The executives, auditors, and other members of the association have organized and held workshops and issued newsletters under the leadership of former presidents. The association has been able to implement research activities for a long period of time thanks to the advice of regular members and the support of supporting members. The workshops have been held twice a year since 1990. A total of 74 workshops(regular conferences), as well as symposiums, have been held and 33 research bulletins (proceedings) have been issued over the last 35 years. We have summarized the workshops and symposiums etc. that have been held.
