Protocol Review

The animal use protocol is a detailed description of the proposed use of laboratory animals. The form and accompanying Health Form(s) must be completed in full and submitted to the chair of the IACUC.

Protocol Review Process

Prior to the review, each IACUC member will be provided with a list of proposed research projects to be reviewed. Written descriptions of research projects that involve the care and use of animals shall be available to all IACUC members, and any member of the IACUC may obtain, upon request, full committee review of those research projects.

No member may participate in the IACUC review or approval of a research project in which the member has a conflicting interest (e.g., is personally involved in the project) except to provide information requested by the IACUC; nor may a member who has a conflicting interest contribute to the constitution of a quorum.
