9.6.3 Policy on Animal Subjects Research
Approved by Academic Council on February 14, 2002; Administration on April 24, 2002
Any use of animal subjects at or sponsored by the University of the Pacific must be reviewed by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). This Committee reviews research protocols that require the use of animals to ensure that the methods of animal care and welfare are appropriate and in compliance with federal, state, and institutional regulations.
The University regulations are described in the manual Program for Care and Use of Laboratory Animals at the University of The Pacific Stockton Campus. Copies of this manual, the required forms, the deadlines for submission of research protocols and meeting dates of the IACUC are available in the Research and Graduate Studies office.
