Working collaboratively with laboratory personnel to meet oversight mandates
by Jennifer Davis
Continuing oversight of research activities is required by federal laws, regulations, and policies, but how this is accomplished is left to the individual institution. At Penn, the research community wanted to respond to this oversight mandate, but sought a partnering type of approach with the IACUC and the Office of Animal Welfare (OAW). Within the OAW at Penn, our mission, as compliance liaisons, is to work openly and cooperatively with the scientific community. This helps the laboratory personnel to view compliance as a tool to facilitate their research objectives and assists the overall institutional compliance.
