IACUC Office Hours

Are you responsible for ensuring that your lab's IACUC protocol meets the highest animal welfare standards and will be approved as soon as possible? Are you wondering what the best blood collection technique for your study might be? Do you wish there was some way you could have someone show you how to use the RIO database for writing and submitting protocols?

In-person Office Hours (OH) have resumed on a biweekly basis and the location will alternate accordingly (see schedule below). Email notifications will be sent to researchers at least 2 days prior to the OH session. IACUC analysts are also available via Zoom Video Conference. If you'd like to schedule a Zoom meeting, please contact [email protected].
