The 3Rs Beyond the IQ Consortium: Considerations for Contracted Research

November 13, 2015


IQ will hold its next webinar, “The 3Rs Beyond the IQ Consortium: Considerations for Contracted Research,” on 13 November 2015 at 11:00 AM ET. Please register now by visiting:

Webinar Synopsis: For many IQ Consortium member companies, study outsourcing comprises a major portion of their total animal research program. Discussions of responsible animal use and the 3Rs aren’t complete without reviewing offsite research activity, and considering how to further improve animal use conducted with external facilities.

The 3Rs Leadership Group has focused a working group to examine various areas where interactions between sponsor and contract laboratory impact animal use. Their goal is to develop mutually beneficial modifications to those interactions which result in replacement, reduction, and refinement opportunities.

This webinar focuses on a training program developed to increase the baseline knowledge of individuals contributing to the outsource relationship, but who are not primarily scientists or vivarium workers.

We will discuss how the training was developed and implemented, as well as review the content of the training program itself. The program is intended for internal use by individual companies and institutions, and seeks to provide basic information supporting cost/benefit analysis and more informed decisions.

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email with information about connecting to the webinar.

We hope you can join us.
