Regulatory Compliance Specialist, Allen Institute

In an era of 24-hour news media, an institution may only have seconds to decide how to present findings to preserve or rebuild its reputation around sensitive topics. Proactive management and oversight by the IACUC are at the heart of maintaining institutional credibility. During this session, faculty and attendees will:


  • Use real-life scenarios to examine what happens when information is leaked, distorted, or both, and how to mitigate these situations
  • Analyze the communication situations that can sabotage trust in the institutional oversight process
  • Explore how perceptions can be powerful influencers in the IACUC investigation process
  • Share information that advances understanding of how oversight agencies respond to reported concerns or complaints
  • Discuss the possible consequences and/or protections for both individuals and institutions if reports about animal welfare concerns become public
