Northwestern University and Loyola University Medical Center will present IACUC 101 and 201 PLUS Workshops on October 7-8, 2009 in Chicago, Illinois with support from the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW), the Animal Care Division, Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), and the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC).
IACUC 101 – “The Basics” – is a full day didactic and interactive educational program designed to provide Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) members, administrators, veterinarians, animal care staff, researchers, regulatory personnel and compliance officers with information on the role and responsibilities of IACUCs, including an understanding of federal policies and regulations governing laboratory animal welfare.
IACUC 201 PLUS – “The Process PLUS Select Topics” – is a highly interactive program that takes the fundamentals of IACUC 101 and applies them to the process and mechanisms of ensuring compliance. The morning and afternoon sessions are divided into 3 tracks based on an individual’s IACUC role, responsibility, and interests. Track topics are customized to include subjects of timely interest. The program concludes with open questions and answers to representatives of OLAW, USDA, and AAALAC.
