Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

As of December 3, 2014 the IACUC has transitioned from a paper submission and review process to an electronic submission and review process, using a system called IRBNet.  All submissions for the December 17, 2014 meeting must be submitted electronically. The office has relocated to 292 Hayes Hall.
