NIH’s ORIP Organizes Workshop

In September 2022, the NIH’s Office of Research Infrastructure Programs (ORIP) organized a workshop titled “Enhance Rigor and Reproducibility in Animal Research by Managing Extrinsic Factors”.

This workshop was supported by seven NIH Institutes including:

  • National Cancer Institute (NCI)
  • National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI)
  • National Institute on Aging (NIA)
  • National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID)
  • Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHD)
  • National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK)
  • National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS)

The workshop served as a forum to discuss the current status of and needs for understanding extrinsic environmental factors, their potential impact on animal research outcomes, as well as how facilities may optimally manage, monitor, and report these extrinsic factors to enhance rigor and reproducibility in animal research. The focus of this workshop was on identifying gaps, opportunities, and new approaches in husbandry of commonly and widely used animal models; measuring and monitoring relevant environmental factors and conditions; and exploring the need for novel instruments, equipment, and infrastructure for animal research core facilities.

This is exactly why we developed SenSV. We saw a need in the market for technologies like ours, and we did it! You can also download the full report of the outcome of the workshop.
