  • Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUC)

    The mission of the Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee (IACUC) is to ensure that all animals used in research, teaching and testing are cared for and used in a humane manner consistent with all applicable federal, state and local regulations and guidelines. Institutions that receive federal funds or use species covered by the Animal Welfare Act are required, by the Public Health Service (PHS) and USDA, to appoint an IACUC to review all research, teaching or testing activities involving animals and to oversee and evaluate the animal care and use program. Each Partners institution is responsible for maintaining its own IACUC. ​
