Don’t miss OLAW Conversations: Top Noncompliances from an OLAW, USDA, and AAALAC Perspective
How to Learn from Noncompliances to Build a Better Animal Care and Use Program

This OLAW Conversations takes place this Wednesday, January 19, from 1:30 – 3:30 PM ET, so register now!

Join us to learn about the top three noncompliances based on self-reports to OLAW and USDA inspection data. Participants will also hear AAALAC perspectives on noncompliances and learn from other attendees. This session will focus on using the information on noncompliances to improve animal care and use programs by:

  • determining root causes of noncompliance
  • optimizing corrective plans, and
  • enhancing monitoring and self-assessment.

OLAW Conversations is a series from OLAW and the ICARE Project that focuses on hot topics in the animal care and use community. The sessions are discussion-based, where information is presented by subject matter experts, and attendees add to the conversation by sharing their ideas, perspectives, and questions. Experts will also weigh in on participant discussion to offer insights and ensure regulatory compliance, where applicable.

Participants are welcome to submit their questions on these topics in advance by emailing OLAW.

The recording and resources on OLAW’s December webinar, “Best Practices for Conducting a Search for Alternatives and Finding Animal Model/Model Organism Information” are now available

On December 9, 2021, we presented our live webinar titled, “Best Practices for Conducting a Search for Alternatives and Finding Animal Model/Model Organism Information,” featuring Jessie Kull from the USDA Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC) and Joelle Mornini from the NIH Library.

In this webinar, our panelists discussed how to find 3Rs (replacement, reduction, and refinement) methods and animal use alternative information in bibliographic databases. They also demonstrated how to find journal articles, patents, NIH-funded research projects, and genetic information related to animal models and model organisms, as well as requirements and resources for the NIH Model Organism Sharing Policy.

If you joined us for the live webinar but experienced audio difficulties, we’ve rerecorded portions of the webinar and you may now watch those portions of the webinar again.

Visit the webinar webpage for the captioned webinar, PDF of the transcript, and a PDF of the slides.
