Annual Review of Approved Protocols

All active protocols for animal care and use must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC annually. The IACUC coordinator will forward the Principal Investigator of a study the appropriate annual review request information one month before the protocol anniversary date. The Principal Investigator is to respond to all committee requests listed on the annual review cover letter and the 2-paged annual review form provided by the IACUC Coordinator. Failure by the Principal Investigator to respond to the request for annual review by the IACUC may result in immediate deactivation of IACUC approval for the use of animal subjects in an ongoing study. Questions concerning annual review documents should be directed to the IACUC coordinator.
