Animal Research

Use and Care of Laboratory Animals

Anyone performing animal research, including faculty, staff, and students are required to complete appropriate training prior to beginning the project, regardless of funding source.  Note that after completion of training, the individual must be added to an active protocol approved by the Institutional Animal Care and use Committee (IACUC) prior to commencing animal research.

All individuals engaged in animal research must complete the ISER Use and Care of Laboratory Animals module before being added to an IACUC protocol and interacting with any animals. Re-certification is required every 4 years.
