Mrs Nicola Hodgman, Manager, Research Ethics Unit will provide an over-view of the legislative and regulatory changes and what impact this will have on animal use in research and teaching in Tasmania.  The workshop will outline the impact on researchers, students, animal facility managers, the institution and the Animal Ethics Committee.
