Webinar Available on IACUC Responsibilities Regarding Service Animals


Are you involved in animal programs or working with the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)? Check out this webinar, where Drs. Axel Wolff, from the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare, and Ron Banks, from the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center, discuss laws and regulations relevant to providing access to research facilities for service animals. They define and discuss different categories of animals (e.g., service animals, emotional support animals, psychiatric service dogs, pets) and provide publicly available examples of institutional policies regarding service animals in research facilities. They also examine a hypothetical scenario and provide answers to questions received before the webinar.
