Federal regulations and policies require that each institution using animals for research, education, and/or teaching establish an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). In general, the IACUC is an advisory committee to the Institutional Official (IO), which at UofL is the Dean of the School of Medicine, and is assigned the oversight for all animal care and use. The UofL IACUC assumes responsibility for those functions given in:
Public Health Service (PHS) Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals
- Animal Welfare Act (Pub. L. 89-544) and all Animal Care Regulations contained in Title 9, Subchapter A
This site is designed to give both the seasoned investigator and new faculty member current information on the charge and operation of the IACUC. Included are contact names, online access to IACUC Policies, Federal regulations, accreditation/compliance details for grants, and other helpful information.
