On Wednesday, April 19, and Thursday, April 20, 2006, in Richmond, Virginia, the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and Virginia Commonwealth University will co-sponsor two days of IACUC training at the Omni Richmond Hotel. The first day is a traditional IACUC 101 course, which is a full day didactic and interactive training course that provides a basic yet comprehensive overview of the laws, regulations, and policies that govern the humane care and use of laboratory animals with examples and possible approaches for successful and effective administration. The second day is a special IACUC 201 course, which is a highly interactive program that takes the fundamentals of IACUC 101 and applies them to the process and mechanisms of ensuring compliance with a mock IACUC in the afternoon session to address complex scenarios.
The program and registration information are posted at http://www.research.vcu.edu/events/iacuc101201.
