Program of Activities

February 27, 2018 - NWABR Spring IACUC Conference (Registration Fees Ranging From $295 to $475)

  • A one day meeting on February 27, 2018 covering hot topics related to animal care and use, led by facilitators from around the United States.
  • Exhibit tables on February 27, 2018 so attendees can meet with those in the field providing valuable resources and service.

NWABR will once again be working with the Office of Animal Care at the University of Washington to arrange a complimentary program that will showcase strategies to improve animal care programs.



For the past 19 years NWABR has offered an annual IACUC conference for IACUC Committee members, veterinarians, animal techs and researchers.  This leading regional conference is designed by a volunteer Planning Committee.  The members of the Planning Committee passionately care about the ethical use of animals in research and will be designing this conference to meet the needs of both new and experienced practioners.  

In addition to the various presentations there will be a Mock IACUC session that will allow conference participants to test their knowledge of the rules and regulations against a panel of experts and regulatory and compliance experts.

As always the aim of this conference will be to provide you with up to date information that will directly inform your day to day work, allow for much needed networking and most importantly focus on the heart of this important work.

CE Credits:  NWABR is anticipating that attendees will be awarded at least 7.5 hours of CE credits towards CIP recertification for participating in this conference.

The conference is limited to 200 attendees so early registration is encouraged.
