The conference will focus on issues and seek to develop sound resolutions to those items revealed in a survey of over one hundred and twenty-five representatives from academic institutions who were asked to identify IACUC programmatic issues. The program has been designed to provide attendees with opportunities to learn from IACUC experts and colleagues.
