The key to managing a proactive, progressive animal care and use program is maintaining an open and active environment for communications between all those involved. Attendees should have an understanding of IACUC responsibilities, committee membership requirements, and federally required animal user training before attending this session. During this session, faculty and attendees will:


  • Review how to create and maintain an effective communication environment
  • Discuss how to effectively communicate with the users
  • Explore how scientific members can serve as liaisons to their departments and the research community as a whole
  • Examine options for keeping scientific members engaged
  • Go over the training roles for the scientific members
