Build and strengthen your animal care and use program at the 2022 PRIM&R Annual Conference (PRIMR22). This conference combines PRIM&R’s previous IACUC Conference and Advancing Ethical Research Conferences into one event with sessions to help you in your day-to-day work and in thinking holistically about the research continuum.  

Expand your knowledge of the ethical issues related to the federal regulations governing the use of animals in research, IACUC administration, and the management of animal care and use programs.  Learn best practices for reviewing and monitoring animal research. Connect with peers and other research stakeholders to exchange ideas and solutions.


Sessions focused on IACUC:

Topics on the agenda include:

  • Compassion fatigue
  • Balancing experimental refinements with scientific justification for existing practices
  • Compliance Unit Standard Procedure (CUSP) and addressing administrative burden
  • Translation and reproducibility
  • Animal well-being and the 3Rs
  • Preparing for facility inspections
  • Disaster planning
  • Communicating with the public and responding to misinformation
