Updates of the AIN-93 reference diets for rodents must be based on robust scientific evidence. We need experts in the field to contribute to this effort by advising us of research that reports data indicative of potential inadequacies in the composition of the diets. Please participate by addressing the questions in the survey, and also submitting your summaries, reference list, and/or other considerations in the space provided at the end of the survey.
Additional information may also be sent directly to Dr. David Klurfeld (David.Klurfeld@gmail.com).
