Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) Presbyterian College

Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

The Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC) ensures that the highest animal welfare standards are maintained along with the conduct of accurate, valid scientific research through the supervision, coordination, training, guidance, and review of every project proposed to include the use of vertebrate animals at Presbyterian College.

Well-established procedures, similar to those used to monitor human subjects research, are used for reviewing and monitoring animal research, teaching, and testing projects conducted under College sponsorship and guidance.

The IACUC is ultimately responsible for approving, requiring modification of, or prohibiting the use of vertebrate animals in research, teaching, or testing activities. In addition to reviewing and approving animal use applications and protocol modifications, the IACUC also approves changes to the College’s policies governing animal care and use and conducts announced and unannounced inspections of animal care and use locations.
