Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee, composed of faculty members and a veterinarian from the local community, reviews classroom and research use of vertebrate animals. The committee considers classroom and research protocols to assure that the animals involved are handled properly and humanely and in accordance with Public Health Service guidelines. The committee also conducts routine inspections of the animal colonies in Carnegie Science Hall.

Questions on the guidelines and information on the review process can be directed to the chair, John Kelsey, or to Mary Hughes, the Animal Care Coordinator.
