Animal Use Instructions For Investigators
All investigators must successfully complete the on-line
training module, "Working with the IACUC." In
addition, investigators need to successfully complete any
modules that are relevant to the studied species and to the type
of experiment. If the species you plan to work with is not
covered by any of the on-line modules, it will be necessary to
demonstrate that other training has been obtained.
Training for agricultural research is available through Dr. Don Sudbrink.
Please contact him for further information.
