About the Webinars

OLAW Online Seminars is a virtual series designed to help Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs) and Institutional Officials (IOs) explore their responsibilities in the oversight of PHS-funded research that involves the use of live vertebrate animals. The program is tailored to IACUC staff, IACUC members, IOs, veterinarians, compliance personnel, animal care staff, and others involved in animal programs at PHS-Assured institutions. Registration is free. Participants are encouraged to send suggestions for future topics to olawdpe@mail.nih.gov. 

The views expressed by speakers and moderators do not necessarily reflect the official policies of the Department of HHS; nor does mention of trade names, commercial practices, or organizations imply endorsement by the U.S. Government.
