Registration for the January OLAW Webinar is OPEN! Congruence Review


January 18, 2024 | 3:00 PM –4:00 PM | Virtual 

Join us as we explore the topic of congruence review. Congruence review is required prior to award (e.g., grants, cooperative agreements, contracts) for activities that involve the use of live vertebrate animals per PHS Policy IV.D. It is the process that ensures that the information in IACUC protocols is consistent with the application to be awarded, and is an institutional responsibility. This OLAW Online Seminar will cover the foundations of congruence review, including definitions, requirements, flexibilities, and answers to common compliance questions. We will also discuss institutional perspectives on approaches to fulfil this requirement.

Speakers include: 

  • Julie Sharp, DVM, CPIA, DACLAM 
    Executive Director of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Program (IACUP)
    Office of Research, University of California, San Francisco 
  • Jennifer Klahn, MA, CPIA 
    Director, Research Safety & Animal Welfare 
    Institutional Contact for Dual Use Research 
    University of California, Los Angeles
