Please join us in welcoming Dr. Kathleen Scott as our new OAR Clinical Veterinarian. Dr. Scott will be joining our team on Monday, July 17, 2017. Dr. Scott received her DVM from Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma and has just completed a Residency in Laboratory Animal Medicine at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
OAR will be adjusting the Rodent Special Services charges effective July 1, 2017.
In order to assist research staff, OAR will begin using bright green “*Attention* Breeder Cards” to notify labs at the cage level of required actions to avoid a charge (example below).
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) announced October 13, 2015 that the requirements of the Vertebrate Animals Section (VAS) of grant applications, cooperative agreements and contract proposals have been changed (NOT-OD-16-006) along with some features of 2016 grant application guidance, forms and instructions (NOT-OD-16-004).
