The Institutional Animal Use and Care Committee (IACUC) of Lawrence Technological University responds to federal requirements established in the Public Health Service’s “ Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals” and USDA animal welfare regulations. The goal of the IACUC is to ensure the humane care and use of animals that are used in research and compliance with guidelines and regulations, while maintaining flexibility to best meet the unique needs of the institution.
The IACUC is chaired by Dr. Jeffery Morrissette, Assistant Professor of Biology. Active participation by research scientists allows for the scientific needs of research investigators to be considered; participation by nonaffiliated members incorporates a public conscience; and the involvement of veterinarians ensures appropriate medical care and animal well-being. IACUC provides a program of continuing education that is essential to ensure that animal care and use standards and ethical principles continue to be applied at the highest possible level.
