Animal Care and Use Committee Conference
The 2016 NWABR Regional IACUC Conference in Bellevue, WA, is being hosted in conjunction with the annual PRIM&R IACUC conference.

April 1 and 2:     PRIM&R IACUC conference

The IACUC 101, the NWABR conference and the PRIM&R conference are all being hosted at the Bellevue Hyatt hotel.  

NWABR's IACUC conference will focus on experiences, real-world cases, and expert panels.  In response to attendee requests from prior years Paula Clifford from Americans for Medical Progress will lead a session about how we can talk about the work of IACUCs and animal research with lay audiences.  This is an important topic for all biomedical researchers as the ability to honestly communicate our work is key to keeping the public's trust.
