Do you want more tools to understand good experimental design when reviewing animal use protocols? Watch this informative webinar on approaches for the IACUC to effectively evaluate study design, animal numbers, and statistical descriptions in animal protocols. By focusing on concepts rather than mathematical equations, this webinar is for all IACUC members regardless of scientific or statistical background.
Learning objectives for this webinar included:
Explain the principles of sound study design (e.g., control groups, experimental units, logistical feasibility)
Discuss methods to evaluate study design and statistical justifications
Relate these skills to transparency, reproducibility, and study quality
Identify IACUC resources that IACUCs may be helpful in dealing with these issues
This webinar is based on Dr. Reynolds' previous article, Statistics, statistical thinking, and the IACUC.
