|Abstract: The panel will provide a discussion of current practices that obfuscate scientists from initiation or continuing human and non-human animal research. The workshop will be led by the ABA appointed member of the board of trustees to the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC), APA’s Science Directorate member who has the responsibility to monitor IRB and IACUC issues, and two senior ABA members involved in human or non-human behavioral research. Information related to existing and proposed legislation that will affect both IRBs and IACUCs will be presented and discussed. Attendees will be encouraged to provide additional discussion of issues including examples of IACUC and IRB “creep” (over-extension of existing federal guidelines).
