OLAW Webinar: “21st Century Cures Act - Updates and Your Questions Answered”
March 10, 2022 | 1:00-2:00 PM EST
In this webinar, the speakers will provide updates from the USDA and OLAW on progress in implementing the recommended measures of the 21st Century Cures Act. We also want to hear from you and will answer your questions during this session!
The 21st Century Cures Act, Section 2034(d), directed NIH, USDA, and FDA to “complete a review of applicable regulations and policies for the care and use of laboratory animals and to make revisions, as appropriate, to reduce administrative burden on investigators while maintaining the integrity and credibility of research findings and the protection of research animals.” In response to this directive, a working group from NIH, USDA, and FDA identified regulations and policies that contribute to the administrative burden. It released a report in 2019 detailing the planned actions of the three agencies.
If you have any questions for Drs. Brown and Theodorson regarding 21st Century Cures Act initiatives from their respective agencies, please submit them to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 21, 2022.
