Day / Time (ET):
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 8:00am to Thursday, March 14, 2019 - 4:30pm
The workshop is targeted for principal investigators, members of IACUCs, information providers, administrators of animal use programs, and veterinarians.
The regulations of the Animal Welfare Act require that investigators provide Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs) with documentation demonstrating that alternatives to procedures that may cause more than momentary pain or distress to the animals have been considered and that activities do not unnecessarily duplicate previous experiments. A thorough literature search regarding alternatives meets this Federal mandate. An alternative is any procedure which results in the reduction in the numbers of animals used, refinement of techniques, or replacement of animals.
