Office of The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

The mission of the IACUC is to promote and to facilitate scientific research while simultaneously striving to reduce the number of animals required, to perform research with techniques that limit pain or distress, and to seek alternative procedures that can supply the required results but do not utilize living animals. To that end, our goal is to promote and encourage an atmosphere of attention, concern and caring for the welfare and comfort of the animals that are under our charge.
