IACUC 21: The Charge & The Challenge

The Evolving Role of Animal Welfare Compliance • October 17, 2014 • 8:00am – 4:30pm EDT
The Palace at Somerset Park, 333 Davidson Avenue, Somerset, NJ 08873

On October 17, 2014, the New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research (NJABR) is pleased to offer its 21st Annual IACUC Conference – New Jersey’s premier training conference for Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee members, lab animal veterinarians, animal welfare compliance specialists and lab animal research team members.

This year’s conference will focus on the evolving role of animal welfare compliance within institutions – from the genesis of the role in modern programs to its status of a stand alone office in many institutions. IACUC 21 will help increase your awareness of the important role of animal welfare compliance and help integrate AWC specialists into your lab animal teams.
