Salisbury University has a strong commitment to animal care and treatment.  Quality animal care is critical to quality research outcomes and mandated by Federal animal welfare regulations.  Administered through the Office of Graduate Studies and Research, the Animal Care Program is governed by SU’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).  The IACUC is responsible for interpreting the various animal welfare and humane use regulations and policies, and for establishing a set of guidelines governing the use of animals on campus.  Thus, no animals may be used on the Salisbury University campus for research, teaching, or other purposes without prior approval of the IACUC.  The Committee approval is based on the IACUC review of the investigator’s submitted animal use protocol.

In addition, the IACUC performs the following broad services and functions:

  1. Assurance of animal care appropriate to the facility, personnel, ongoing research and teaching and to the requirements of the NIH Guide.
     
  2. Procurement and utilization of animals, animal care supplies and equipment in an efficient and effective manner.
     
  3. Precise and complete documentation of animal use on campus and proper identification of all animals. 
     
  4. Education and training of faculty, staff and students on animal research, animal use procedures and animal welfare issues.
     
  5. The Office of Graduate Studies and Research will be the first point of contact providing technical assistance and administrative staff to the Committee. It will house all documents and monitor federal compliance.
