Research on Animal Subjects

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged with creating and monitoring protocols for all research and instructional use of vertebrate animal species. These protocols should comply with relevant federal and state regulations; public concerns about the humane treatment of animals; veterinary expertise in laboratory animal care; accepted standards of appropriate facilities; and protection against unsubstantiated allegations against investigators. The current IACUC Chair is Paul R. Cabe, Professor of Biology. For information, please contact him at
