Grant and Protocol Congruency for IACUCs

Date: January 13, 2016
Authors: Patricia A. Brown and Richelle Scales
Description: It is an institution's responsibility to ensure that the research described in a grant application is congruent with any corresponding protocols approved by the institutional animal care and use committee (IACUC). IACUC administrators and other institution staff are tasked with ensuring approved animal research protocols are in agreement with the grants that sponsor them. During this basic-level webinar, presenters will discuss considerations for congruency reviews from the perspectives of the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and an IACUC protocol analyst.

Identifying and Preventing Distress in Laboratory Animals
Webinars

Identifying and Preventing Distress in Laboratory Animals

Date: October 5, 2016
Authors: Mollie A. Bloomsmith and Eric Hutchinson
Description: Is your institution equipped to diagnose and prevent distress in the animals used for research purposes?
Stress and distress can negatively impact the welfare of laboratory animals and have adverse consequences for research. Minimizing distress in animals is mandated by federal regulations and remains an ethical obligation for research and compliance staff. To take measures to minimize distress, it is essential to understand its causes and manifestations among the various species of laboratory animals. Planning to reduce or prevent distress should be included in the initial design and review of research projects.
