Location: Biomed I B205/207 (IACUC Meeting Room)

Overview

IACUC deliberation is key to humane, safe, and well-reasoned use of animals in research and teaching. When reviewing a protocol, the IACUC balances costs and benefits to arrive at a decision on approval. Costs include animal lives, pain or distress, and resources. Benefits include knowledge to advance science and medicine. In this webinar, we will walk through the protocol review process with the strategy of posing questions to understand how animals will be studied from start to finish, including details that directly affect animal welfare. These questions bring out what is required in a protocol with a focus on aspects that bear on humane and regulatory considerations, and prepare IACUC members to effectively discuss the protocol.

Learning objectives:

  • Identify that issues that must be addressed in an animal protocol.
  • Apply a strategy for an effective review of an animal protocol.
  • Assess the potential for animal pain and/or distress based on the descriptions of the procedures in a protocol.
  • Audience: IACUC members and veterinarians
