Thank you

This live web event has ended. Thank you for attending.


Amidst the increasing complexity of research, heightened institutional and public scrutiny, and evolving regulations, maintaining meticulous oversight of animal care and use programs remains a steadfast obligation of every Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). A critical part of IACUC oversight involves identifying when things go wrong, implementing corrective actions, and, in some cases, reporting to regulatory and oversight bodies.

This interactive webinar will use a mix of lecture, scenarios, and Q&A to examine the IACUC’s role in identifying noncompliance and other adverse events in the animal care and use program.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • What is noncompliance?
  • What is an adverse event?
  • How should IACUCs investigate and document noncompliance and adverse events?
  • What are the requirements for reporting such events to AAALAC, OLAW, and the USDA?
We invite attendees to submit questions here in advance of the webinar. Time is also reserved for questions raised during the session.

Who should attend?

IACUC administrative staff, IACUC members, veterinary staff, researchers
