Thursday, June 27, 2024

1:00–2:15 PM EST 



The intricacies of a complex Animal Care and Use Program (ACUP) are interwoven with a collection of policies, guidelines, and standard operating procedures (SOPs), forming the backbone of its operational framework.

Together, these elements create a cohesive structure that governs the program's activities, enhances accountability, and fosters organizational alignment, thereby facilitating the successful execution of the program.
