    Name: IACUC 2019
    Date: April 29, 2019 - April 30, 2019
    Event Description:
    IACUC 2019  is a two-day conference intended for both new IACUC members and seasoned members of animal care and use programs.
    Day 1 (IACUC Fundamentals) will address key issues for successful animal care and use programs, including the roles and responsibilities of the IACUC, training and personnel qualifications, protocol review, semiannual program reviews and inspections, issues of noncompliance and corrective measures that actually work.
    Day 2 (IACUC Advanced) will provide in-depth presentations and discussion during multiple plenary and breakout sessions. Plenary sessions will address harm-benefit analysis and the issues where scientific review and IACUC review overlap, resulting in substantial pressures that will result in IACUCs needing new and flexible ways of looking at their mandate and their work.  
    Concurrent sessions will address:
    • Controlled substance use, oversight and management
    • Collaborations, MOUs and grant congruency review
    • Challenges in tracking animal numbers (e.g., rodent neonates, fish)
    • Protocol expiration dates
    • Effectively working with ancillary committees (IBC, IRB, environmental safety)
    • Occupational health & safety compliance
    • Considerations for alternatives: Pain categories, search requirements and the 3Rs
    • Application of veterinary clinical care
    • Animal biocontainment in BSL3 labs
    • Field research
    • IACUC oversight of invertebrates
    • Methods for reducing administrative burden
    • Establishing a compassion fatigue program
    • Rehoming research animals
    • Humane endpoints
    • Best practices in program communication mechanisms

    Lab Animal Research Communications Intensives  -- New for NCABR’s IACUC Advanced program will be the addition of multiple, optional small group communication intensive sessions. These 45-minute sessions, led by a science communications expert, will run throughout the day on April 30. Participants will work through scenarios that prepare and empower them to provide effective lab animal research advocacy.
