Helping Ohio State Investigators Meet Requirements for the Use of Regulated Animals


Animal Care and Use

The Animal Care and Use Program (ACUP) is responsible for all animals used in research, teaching and testing in the agricultural and biomedical programs at Ohio State.

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees the responsible use of 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.
