Launch Announcement: ALN Europe Changes Name to ALN World

AMHERST, NH--(Marketwire - August 19, 2009) - Vicon Publishing announces that ALN Europe™ magazine will officially be renamed ALN World™ beginning with the November/December 2009 issue. The name change reflects the expanded editorial coverage and global circulation since the magazine's launch in 2008. ALN World will continue to provide news and information on facility design, equipment, regulations, and operations for professionals working in laboratory animal research facilities.

"ALN World represents the trend that is happening globally in biomedical research. Borders are being crossed and perhaps eventually erased as the goals of standardizing practices and information sharing become the norm in this industry," says Patrick Murphy, ALN World Publisher and CEO.

To meet the expanding needs of the worldwide audience, ALN World editors will be reporting on topics of international interest. The first in a series of articles will cover research in China. Also new will be a management column as well as column focused on successful methods for training. ALN World will also premiere a monthly e-newsletter to provide timely updates on events and news in biomedical animal research.
