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 contact our office at 752-2364, to speak to a specialist or leave a voice mail message and/or send an email message to the IACUC staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note: Protocol and amendment pre-review times by Veterinary and IACUC Office staff, as well as Final Committee review and approval will likely be slow the closer we get to our campus AAALAC site visit the week of September 30 – October 4. Please plan accordingly for potential delays. If you have a protocol or amendment submission requiring urgent attention, please provide written justification for your request to email@example.com. Animal welfare issues will be prioritized.
Protocols listing hazardous chemicals and that require additional Chemical Safety review are also taking longer than normal to process due to staff shortages within EH&S. If you need to request expedited review please contact the IACUC office at firstname.lastname@example.org and provide written justification for the request. Thank you for your understanding.
