SCSU’s appointed Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is governed by polices set forth by the federal Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare in accordance with the Animal Welfare Act and the Public Health Service Policy of Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, and the United States Department of Agriculture animal welfare regulations. The IACUC oversees and routinely evaluates all components and facilities related to vertebrate animal care and use in teaching and research activities, assists institutions in caring for and using animals in ways judged to be scientifically, technically, and humanely appropriate, and educates and trains investigators so they may conduct animal experiments in accord with the highest scientific, humane, and ethical principles.
