Brand New: Crossing the I's Conferences Planned in Spokane and Portland

Crossing the I's Conferences POrtland (November 29, 2016) and Spokane (December 7, 2016)

In response to demand from research communities in Eastern WA, MT, ID and in OR NWABR is hitting the road.  

A Crossing the I's conference combines the core material covered in traditional IACUC, IRB and IBC conferences and delivers this material in an accessible way, with plenty of time for networking, small group discussions and information sharing.

This conference is aimed particularly for members of IACUC, IRB and IBC Committees and for support staff and advisors for these committees.  Researchers who work with these Committees will also benefit from attending as they will gain an improved understanding of how these committess work.

The detailed program for each of these conferences is currently being developed.  The core program of each conference will be similar with some regional variations based on local expertise.  The conference registration fees for these conferences will be $75 for staff of member organizations and $95 for non-member organizations (lunch and other refreshments will be provided)
