Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees all research involving animals. Prior to the initiation any research efforts involving the use of animals, all UNCG researchers must have IACUC approval. If you have any questions regarding your IACUC application, the best way to contact us is by email at email@example.com.
IACUC meetings are open to the public and are typically held the first Tuesday of every month. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
UNCG has implemented an electronic IACUC submission system, Cayuse Animal Oversight.
For helpful resources for navigating the Cayuse Animal Oversight electronic submission system, visit the Cayuse Animal Oversight Resource page.
Protocols will be approved for three-year periods, however we still require denovo reviews (a new application prior to the beginning of the fourth year of work). Amendments will still need to be submitted for IACUC review.
