    ROCKVILLE, Maryland, June 6, 2012—The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is announcing a solicitation for applications from institutions and organizations for inclusion into its Veterinary Laboratory Response Network (Vet-LRN) Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory Cooperative Agreement Program.

    The cooperative agreements are intended to provide increased sample analyses in the event of animal food or drug related illnesses or other large-scale animal food/feed emergency events requiring surge capacity testing of implicated diagnostic or animal food samples.
