Longwood’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees and monitors the policies, procedures, and facilities to ensure that treatment of vertebrate animals is in accordance with federal guidelines. The IACUC is comprised of Longwood faculty, a Longwood undergraduate student, a veterinarian, and respected member of the local community. The committee meets on a monthly basis as long as there is business to conduct.
Before any investigator purchases, obtains, or works with vertebrate animals, an animal research protocol must be submitted for review and approval by Longwood’s IACUC.
