FASEB Submits Letter to USDA on Humane Use of Animals in Research
Date: January 04, 2018
Following the recommendations from a Workshop on Reforming Animal Research Regulations in April 2017, the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) recently submitted a letter to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) on reducing regulatory burden. The FASEB Response to the Request for Information (RFI) on identifying regulatory reform initiatives from the USDA focused its comments on USDA’s role in overseeing the use of animals in research, emphasizing recommendations from a joint report released in October 2017 on reducing regulatory burden. ASBMR is a member of FASEB and Dana Gaddy, Ph.D. represents ASBMR on the FASEB Animals in Research and Education Issues Subcommittee of the Science Policy Committee.
