IACUC YourWay: From AtoZ™
CBRA’s signature program, IACUC Your Way, from AtoZ™, offered annually and, upon request, individually on-site at member facilities, carries RACE and CPIA CEUs.
IACUC YourWay: From AtoZ™ is a full-day, groundbreaking, and interactive training program developed by the California Biomedical Research Association (CBRA) for both new and seasoned Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUCs), and those who support them.
While the responsibilities of IACUCs may vary by institution, these committees are key to a successful animal program. IACUC YourWay: From AtoZ™ is designed to cover IACUC issues pertinent to all animal research programs. The program is divided into separate cutting-edge training modules, and topics addressed include:
- key components of animal care and use programs
- the structure, functions, and role of an IACUC
- personnel qualifications and training
- post approval monitoring; occupational health and safety programs
- emerging issues of compliance
In addition, the training will conclude with interactive case study scenarios.
