New Podcast on Writing the Vertebrate Animals Section
Proposing the use of animal models in your application? OLAW has a new podcast on writing the Vertebrate Animals Section in your grant application or contract research proposal. Join Dr. Patricia Brown, OLAW Director, for a discussion of why this application section is required, what reviewers look for, and more.

**ATTENTION Buprenorphine Users**
We have added a new policy (found under Policies and Guidelines) for use of extended release formulations of buprenorphine. These formulations are designed to eliminate the need for multiple dosing. If you are currently approved to use buprenorphine as an analgesic agent and would like to use one of these formulations we are allowing a substitution without the requirement of an amendment. If you are not currently approved to use buprenorphine and would like to add this as an option then an amendment will need to be submitted. The new policy provides a description of the drugs, dosing and ordering information. Please note that the Animalgesics product is currently unavailable.
