Animal Care and Use Committee

Animal research may never never look as exciting to the public as a college football game. However, everyone involved within this field of endeavor (from committee members to the animal care technicians and the investigators), are caring individuals that share, at their core, a deeply respectful and humane regard for the animals in their charge. Additionally, we should always be aware that it is through the work of dedicated individuals in animal research (past, present and future), that we can all look to the future as Fearless Champions.

Noteworthy Animal Use news:

  • Several members of our ACS Department attended the National AALAS meeting November 1-6, 2015 to keep up with the most up-to-date information about lab animal research, care, regulations and products available for lab animal research. They also showed that they, like all of our animal care staff, work hard to be Animal Heroes!!!
