* If the committee does not approve the revised protocol a revised application will be requested, the applicant can then choose to revise the protocol or withdraw the application.  A protocol must receive approval before vertebrate animals can be used in research.

Note:  Some funding agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health, will not review grant proposals that lack the necessary institutional approval. Thus, it is strongly recommended that you contact the committee as early as possible in the project planning stage if external funding will be involved. 

See the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee web site for protocol and other forms, detailed animal care guidelines, and policies.

The committee meets once per month to review new, revised, or amended protocols. Please contact for further information.
