The NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare hosted a live webinar in December 2021 entitled, “Best Practices for Conducting a Search for Alternatives and Finding Animal Model/Model Organism Information.”
Considering alternatives to animals in your application is the topic of our next NIH All About Grants podcast. Drs. Neera Gopee with the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and Christine Livingston with the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences join us for this conversation (MP3 / Transcript). We will go into the 3Rs (replace, refine, and reduce), helpful resources for relevant policies, what’s needed for the vertebrate animal section, role for IACUCs and peer review, as well as organoids, in silico models, and other alternatives…oh my again!
