Please note: Registration for this course ends February 5, 11:00 PM Eastern Time.


Please join us for our next nationwide virtual IACUC 101 Plus program.

IACUC 101™: “Plus” virtual program is 2 days of didactic and interactive educational opportunities for both new and seasoned IACUC members, IACUC affiliates, and others who contribute to their institution’s animal care and use program. The "Plus" portion of our program includes additional Wildlife and Post Approval Monitoring modules and updates from USDA and OLAW. This program is spread out over 2 days via Zoom. Didactic sessions address institutional responsibilities, IACUC charges, relevant informational resources, animal welfare laws, regulations and policies, and best practices. Students also are challenged to consider, deliberate, and develop action plans for a variety of potential IACUC scenarios. The course includes Q&A sessions with representatives from USDA and OLAW. This course will not be recorded, so take good notes on the presentation PDFs and course materials that will be provided to you the 2 days before the course.

Once you've registered, a Zoom link will be provided in the receipt confirmation, which only is sent to the payee, who may or may not be the registrant/participant. Please read and follow the  important points below the agenda:
