IACUC Boot Camp

Monday, March 19
1:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: Delaware CD

IACUC Boot Camp is a half-day, highly interactive overview of the oversight process for animal care and use programs. The first section of the Boot Camp will focus on federal regulations and policies and the role and responsibilities of the IACUC and other animal care program components. This section will consist of didactic presentations, structured to accommodate questions and answers throughout the session. The second section will present a series of case studies, which contain challenging regulatory and ethical issues pertinent to research involving animals. Participants will be encouraged to interact with the faculty and each other in open discussion and debate of the case study issues.
