At the recent PRIM&R IACUC18 Preconference Program, I was excited to see that there was a session dedicated to improving communication and reducing burden between the IACUC and Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC).

Having a solid understanding of the IBC regulations and practices can help reduce burden on investigators and improve communication between compliance committees. Read more

I urge you to take this opportunity to share with the federal regulators your ideas about how we can best streamline regulatory and administrative inefficiencies that don’t promote animal welfare or good science.  Read more
