The Animal Care Committee (ACC) is responsible for reviewing and approving all research involving animals used in research, testing, or teaching.  Committee functions are administrated through the Office of Animal Care and Institutional Biosafety (OACIB) within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research.

The goal of the OACIB is to facilitate the protocol writing/review process for the investigator and to ensure compliance of animal-based research, testing or teaching with federal regulations. OACIB accepts all protocol submissions, coordinates protocol review, notifies the investigator of the outcome of protocol review and works with investigators during the protocol writing/review process.

Please contact us if you have questions regarding the use of animals in research, testing or teaching.
