To work directly with the Assistant Director for Animal Welfare. to assist the Animal Institute Committee, Einstein's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to conduct ongoing review of proposed animal studies and animal use protocols.
Animal Use Protocol Review - During the course of IACUC review of animal use Protocols (AUP's), the committee may identify a number of concerns or issues that must be addressed by the principal investigator in order to receive approval. The "IACUC" Review Administrator" will serve as a case manager and liaison to work with the principal investigator and their departmental administrators to help them address the IACUC's concerns and facilitate revision of the assigned AUP so that it can receive approval. The IACUC Review Administrator conducts administrative reviews of protocol amendments that meet the criteria for administrative review (rather than committee review).
Review of Grant Applications that involve animal studies - The IACUC Review Administrator will assist the institutional extramural granting agencies that all proposed/funded animal studies have been described in an IACUC reviewed and approved AUP by conducting side-by-side comparison of Grant Proposals with IACUC approved AUP's. The administrator will inform the investigator and their departmental administrators of any inconsistencies between grant proposal and AUP, so that these can be addressed through a protocol addendum in a timely fashion, so as not to delay release of funds.
Conduct administrativew review of submitted Animal Use Protocols, Protocol Renewals, Protocol Amendments. Check paperwork for completeness, check training records oof persons associated with the protocol, etc. prior to routing to the IACUC members for review.
Following IACUC review of an AUP, follow-up with investigators to ensure that revisions (minor issues and items may be identified for correction or clarification in order to achieve final approval) requested by the IACUC are received in a timely manner. The administrator will manage the case with the principal investigator to ensure that these issues are addressed and bring these clarifications back to the committee or Delegated Reviewer(s) for approval.
Conduct side-by-side comparison of animal use portions of Grant Proposals with investigators' Animal Use Protools. Communicate with the investigators and their departmental administrators any descrepancies noted during review, so that the protocol can be amended appropriately.
