Animals in Research
Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) provides the oversight for animals in university research and instructional activities. The IACUC reviews protocols, reviews the animal care and use program, and monitors university animal facilities to ensure compliance with standards and regulatory requirements.
Office of the Attending Veterinarian
The Office of the Attending Veterinarian (OAV) supports research utilizing animals via consultation on experimental design, training on animal use techniques, development of new animal models and techniques, and facilitating compliance with regulatory requirements.
Submit and monitor the status of IACUC protocols using e-Protocol. The e-IACUC module supports online submission, review and management of animal protocol information submitted to the IACUC. Online animal ordering, animal census monitoring and tracking of animal expenses for animals housed in University Laboratory Animal Resources (ULAR) facilities are also supported.
