MSMR ONLINE IACUC 6 WEEK TRAINING COURSE

Convenient, Effective, Economical!

Across the country there is a huge need for more, and better-prepared, IACUC members, including IACUC community (non-affiliated) members.

MSMR offers on-line training for prospective and new IACUC members, staff and non-affiliate members. The program consists of six weekly lessons plus exercises. Our instructor holds teleconference office hours each week to help students with the lessons and to facilitate discussions among classmates. Successful completion of each weekly module is required before the student progresses to the next module. Students who satisfactorily complete all assignments and class participation will receive an MSMR Certificate of Completion.

MSMR is ANNOUNCING THE BEECH TREE SCHOLARS PROGRAM
In memory of Colleen Cody and Angela (Angie) Birnbaum 

Beech trees are associated with knowledge and wisdom, are valued for their strength and broad canopy, and are emblematic of the way in which both Colleen and Angie generously shared their time, knowledge and passion for research ethics and regulation. The Beech Tree Scholars program has been established to both honor their memory and continue their legacy of welcoming those new to the field. Beginning in 2024, each year a selected applicant will be awarded registration, domestic airfare and hotel to attend the THREE I’s conference. As the network of Beech Tree Scholars and their supporters grows, it will continue to provide both roots and shelter within the research ethics community. The purpose of the Beech Tree Scholars Conference Scholarship is to enable first time attendees to attend and participate in our THREE I’s professional conference to learn, grow and network. Support will only be available to participants who have been in the IACUC, IBC, IRB or Research Administration field for less than five (5) years. 

ELIGIBILITY
Applicants must be employed in a role supporting or managing Research Administration, IACUC, IBC or IRB at the time of the conference and must be within the first 5 years of involvement in the field, must show a demonstrated interest in regulatory ethics and the THREE I’s and cannot be a prior recipient of a Beech Tree Scholars Award.

• The award recipient must commit to serve on the scholarship selection committee for 1 year following award (virtual meetings).

• The award recipient must commit to write about or present their experience at the conference within 12 months of attending.

• Writing will address the overall experience and highlight MSMR learnings by the recipient. It should be in the form of a blog entry, conference summary review or similar style suitable to be published on the MSMR and THREE I’s conference websites.

• Presentation will be conducted virtually at an online seminar arranged in agreement with MSMR and 3I’s Conference Committee. Alternatively, the presentation can be given at the THREE I’s conference in the following year (travel to that conference is not included).
