Responsible Conduct of Research Workshop: 'Animal Research Studies - Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)'

Friday, 18 October, 2019

John Chrivia Ph.D., Mark Knuepfer Ph.D., Cheri West DVM and Steve Tinge will lead the workshop on the ethical use of animals in research from 10 a.m. to noon on Friday, Oct. 18, in Room 113, Learning Resources Center, as part of the University’s Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) training series.

This workshop is led by Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) staff and utilizes a panel including IACUC members, veterinarians and animal researchers to discuss the ethical foundations of animal research, the common challenges encountered and strategies to conduct ethical animal research.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) require that all graduate and undergraduate students, postdoctoral fellows, and trainees supported by research funds from NIH or NSF complete training in Responsible Conduct of Research (RCR) including  a minimum of eight hours of face-to-face RCR training.

Saint Louis University provides a series of two-hour topic focused workshops throughout the year. Attending a minimum of four workshops will attain compliance with the eight-hour requirement. This workshop will count as two hours of the eight face-to-face training hours required by NIH and NSF.

This training is also highly recommended for all other research positions, including faculty, regardless of their funding.

Registration is requested and available here.
