IACUC policy update

At its November meeting, the IACUC reviewed and updated the policy on provision of space to animals for research or instruction.

Revisions include:

  • Including a reference to the USDA Animal Welfare Act Regulations as a basis for the UGA Program’s space requirements
  • Including the requirement that the URAR SOP rodent cage density standards be followed. Please contact URAR management with any questions regarding these standards.
