IACUC 101 and 201 PLUS Workshops will be held on June 13-14,
2012 in Virginia Beach, Virginia. Support for this program was provided in part
by the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare.
IACUC 101 is a one-day didactic and interactive exploration of IACUC fundamentals appropriate for new and experienced IACUC members, IACUC affiliates, and individuals responsible for their institution's animal care program. The course provides a basic yet comprehensive overview of the laws, regulations, and policies that govern the humane care and use of research animals. Participants have the opportunity to practice what they have learned when they are challenged to consider, deliberate, and develop action plans for a variety of potential IACUC scenarios.
IACUC 201 PLUS 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.
