The ARRIVE 2.0 Essential 10: Guidance for NIH-sponsored Research

June 15, 2023 | 1:00-2:00pm ET

Audience: The program is tailored to IACUC staff, IACUC members, IOs, veterinarians, investigators, compliance personnel, animal care staff, and others involved in animal programs.

Speaker: Penny Reynolds, PhD, Assistant Professor of Anesthesiology, University of Florida College of Medicine


This informative webinar provided an overview of the ARRIVE Essential 10, how each relates to study quality, and how to operationalize them for inclusion in research protocols and grant proposals. The “Essential 10” are statistically-based items essential for ensuring study rigor and reproducibility. However, reporting is not enough – study quality and reliability can be achieved only if these items are built into the study before data are collected.  

What are the ARRIVE Guidelines?

On 10 February 2023, the NIH released Guide Notice NOT-OD-23-057 encouraging inclusion of the ARRIVE Essential 10 in NIH-sponsored research.  ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) 2.0 is the updated and revised version of guidelines first published in 2010 to improve reporting of animal-based research. 

Note: While this information was accurate at the time presented, policies and procedures change over time. Past webinars may not contain the most current guidance. Please note, do not rely on webinars and associated materials as definitive compliance guidance for your specific situation. For compliance questions, please contact OLAW directly.
