FASEB Webinar: Animal Research Regulations – Understanding Federal Oversight Mechanisms
March 26, 2020 | 2:00 – 3:00 PM EDT
Biomedical research with animals is guided by a complex set of federal laws and guidelines and understanding how this research is regulated is critical for ensuring proper care and use of laboratory animals. During this webinar, OLAW will join representatives from USDA APHIS Animal Care and the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide an overview of the federal laws that protect laboratory animals, including the Animal Welfare Act and Public Health Service Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. Participants will also discuss the mechanisms by which federal agencies implement and enforce these regulations. Together, these oversight mechanisms enable researchers to continue expanding scientific knowledge while upholding quality animal care.
