2011 IACUC Conference - I'd like to join the Blog Quad!

In late March, I will be attending the 2011 IACUC Conference in Chicago, IL. In my current position, as the Animal Ethics Research Facilitator in the Research Ethics Office at theUniversity of Saskatchewan, this is a great opportunity to meet with others in field of research ethics administration. This is a conference sponsored by Public Responsibility in Medicine and Research (PRIM&R), an organization dedicated to advancing the highest ethical standards in the conduct of research.

This year, they are putting together a PRIM&R Blog Squad. While I don’t normally blog about research ethics issues (my only other blog to date has been the one I created last year to track my fundraising marathon for my niece, Alivia), I am keen to give it a whirl, especially since the blog squad members receive a complimentary registration to PRIM&R's 2011 IACUC Conference! The PRIM&R Blog Squad will post articles, or other information about IACUC Conference speakers, events, and the city of Chicago. All posts will appear on PRIM&R's blog, Ampersand.

So as part of my application to be considered as member of the PRIM&R Blog Squad, in the coming days I’m going to post my ‘statement of purpose’ to let the PRIM&R conference coordinators know why I would be a great addition to their Blog Squad.
