PRIM&R’s conferences and educational events are the cornerstone of our commitment to “connecting and protecting” – connecting those who work in the fields of human and animal research, and protecting those who participate as research subjects. Through these events, PRIM&R presents an opportunity for stakeholders to come together to consider complex and challenging research issues. More than 225,000 people from around the world take advantage of the learning opportunities—including our annual IACUC Conference series and AER Conference series—offered by PRIM&R since 1974.
Conference attendees include researchers and research staff, institutional officials, medical professionals, government personnel, subject advocates, academics, policy makers, pharmaceutical and biotechnology leaders, and attorneys, as well as chairs, members, and staff of IRBs, IACUCs, IBCs, and ESCROs.
Learn more about PRIM&R's regional programs, one-day and day-and-a-half programs held three times a year throughout the country.
