Institutional Animal Care and Use


The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee oversees the welfare of any animals used in experimental research, their care and facilities, as directed by the U. S. Department of Agriculture and the National Institutes of Health.

All Louisiana Tech University research involving animal subjects must be reviewed by the Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) of Louisiana Tech University prior to research and regardless of funding source. The findings of this committee must be addressed in the body of the proposal and may often be required on the agency cover page.
