Animal Care & Use

IACUC

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.

For general inquiries please contact our staff at iacuc@uga.edu.

Animal Use Proposal Submissions

All animal use proposals are submitted through Artemis to the Office of Animal Care & Use for review by IACUC.

In order to meet UGA network security requirements, off campus access to Artemis now requires the use of the UGA remote access VPN.

Information regarding the installation and configuration of the VPN client can be found at https://eits.uga.edu/access_and_security/infosec/tools/vpn/.

Once connected to the UGA remote access VPN on your device or computer, Artemis can be accessed via https://artemis.ovpr.uga.edu.

For UGA VPN support, please contact the EITS helpdesk at https://eitshelpdesk.uga.edu/ or 706-542-3106.

For Artemis support, please contact Christopher Carter at crcarter@uga.edu or 706-542-7378.
