State, federal and Public Health Service (PHS) regulations seek humane care for all institutional use of animals and require the university's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to review and approve research plans, regardless of the funding sources.
Protocols must be submitted and ready for IACUC review by the 1st of the month in order to be scheduled for that month’s review. This includes addressing all questions and concerns in the pre-review.
No exceptions allowed.
Find facilities for Positron Emission Tomography for small animals at CTRC.
Review additional live-animal research and care policies and resources.
Many federal and institutional compliance regulations require training, both in person and/or online, often before you are allowed to begin your research.
