The Jacksonville State University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged with developing, implementing, and monitoring procedures which assure that the use of animal subjects in research, teaching, or testing at JSU is ethical and in compliance with the United States Public Health Service policy on humane care and use of laboratory animals (Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare) and the Animal Welfare Act (United States Department of Agriculture), as outlined in the JSU policy on Research, Teaching, or Testing using Animal Subjects (Appendix 1). The IACUC establishes and regularly reviews guidelines to ensure ethical practice at JSU for research, teaching, or testing using animal subjects. Additionally, in support of the University’s commitment to ethical treatment and humane care of laboratory animals and its compliance with federal and state law, policy, and guidance, the IACUC, with assistance from the office of the Vice Provost, provides and documents appropriate training for those University faculty, staff, and students who use animal subjects in research, teaching, or testing. Any JSU faculty principal investigator, staff, or student desiring to conduct research, teaching, or testing using animal subjects must submit a protocol to the IACUC for review and approval prior to beginning such work.
