Scratching the Surface on Animal Safety

Wednesday, March 4th 12-1PM

TLPDC 153, University Library

Join EHS for our first Safe-Science Series of spring 2020 on animal use and handling. Come hear from a panel compromised of the Chair of the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC), Phil Smith, University Veterinarian, Tiffanie Brooks and Animal Care Services on-campus facilities manager, Sydnee Woodman.

This expert panel will provide an overview of the animal policies at Texas Tech, the resources available for your work and answer YOUR questions during a facilitated Q&A. Please submit your questions in advance to heather.coats@ttu.edu.

This session does NOT replace your required IACUC training. This Series provides a forum with fellow animal researchers for you to ask questions of the IACUC and Animal Care Services personnel. Open to all researchers and personnel who use or plan to use animals in your work at TTU. Register by March 1st for FREE lunch. 



The following workshops have been cancelled for the Spring 2020 semester. Workshops will be rescheduled for future dates.
