Maintaining its user-friendly approach, this new edition of a bestseller summarizes information necessary for the effective and efficient operation of an IACUC. Chapters cover training programs with a discussion regarding professional certifications for IACUC administrative and animal care staff. They provide pointers to Principal Investigators, discuss interactions between IACUCs and other compliance panels, and address occupational health and safety programs and the role they play in the overall animal care and use program. The book presents different points of view from academia, industry, an IACUC chair, and a non-affiliated member. 373 p.
