Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)


 This committee includes representatives from the academic departments in which research on animals is performed, a consulting veterinarian, and at least one representative member of the surrounding community. It reviews and approves protocols submitted by faculty who wish to use animals in their research, conducts inspections of the animal care facility, and makes recommendations to the University administration on changes and improvements that may be necessary in order to provide optimal and humane care of the animals in the facility.
