Grant-to IACUC Protocol Review/Concurrency PowerPoint Presentation 

UC Davis’ IACUC (Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee) oversees the university’s animal care and use program and is responsible for reviewing all animal use protocols and amendments, ensuring compliance with federal and state regulations, inspecting animal facilities and laboratories, and overseeing training and educational programs.

If you have an animal related emergency, please contact Campus Veterinary Services at 530-219-3076. If you have an urgent protocol or amendment concern that potentially impacts animal welfare, please leave a message for the IACUC staff at

Due to current staffing shortages in Campus Veterinarian Services Offices, protocol and amendment times are taking longer than average to process. Protocols that list hazardous chemicals and require Chemical Safety review are also taking longer than normal to process. If you need to request expedited review please contact the IACUC office at and provide written justification for the request. Thank you for your understanding.
