The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) conducts animal care facility site visits, evaluates programs of animal care, reviews animal use proposals and ensures through staff development activities that people who work with laboratory animals are appropriately trained.
Animal Use Proposal Submissions
All animal use proposals are submitted through Artemis to the Office of Animal Care & Use for review by IACUC.
