In-House Animal Care and Use Committee

The in-house Animal Care and Use Committee (ACUC) allows rapid processing of protocol submissions. The committee can approve protocols within 1-2 weeks and amendments in 1-2 days. Our committee is composed of licensed veterinarians, scientists, certified animal technicians, and laypersons.

  • Pre-review of your protocol with a veterinarian streamlines application writing.
  • Protocol reviewed by full committee.
  • Any necessary changes are made to the protocol.
