OLAW Webinar: Balancing Public Interests, Benefits, and Risks in Animal Research
June 9, 2016
1:00-2:00pm, 2 Stimson Avenue, Providence, RI 02912
Dr. Allyson J. Bennett at the University of Wisconsin-Madison will talk about the responsibility to conduct benefit and risk analysis and some of the key factors that play a role. Analysis of potential benefit and potential risk is embedded in multiple levels of review and decision-making about animal research activities. How that analysis occurs and informs decisions that balance humane care of research animals, scientific goals, and the public interest in scientific advances, is not always well understood. The IACUC is one of the important groups that contribute to the analysis and also one that can contribute to better public understanding. More information.
