Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare Webinar – 21st Century Cures Act: Update on Implementation


The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) will be releasing their prerecorded quarterly webinar titled “21st Century Cures Act: Update on Implementation” on March 11, 2021, featuring Drs. Patricia Brown (NIH), Betty Goldentyer (USDA), and Brianna Skinner (FDA). No registration required!

In this webinar, the speakers will provide updates on the agencies’ progress in implementing the recommended measures of the 21st Century Cures Act. 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, Goldentyer, and Skinner, please submit them to before February 19, 2021.
