The Animal Care Committee meets once a month (routinely the 2nd Tuesday of each month) to review Animal Use Protocols (AUPs), discuss policy and standard operating procedures, and review compliance issues.

Animal Use Protocols must be submitted to the Office of Animal Ethics and Compliance (via Topaz) by the following deadlines:

  • Original Protocols: Two weeks prior to the meeting date
  • Annual Protocol Renewals: Two weeks prior to the meeting date
  • Protocol Amendments: One week prior to the meeting date

Please note that protocols can be renewed a maximum of three times (i.e. a protocol life of 4 years). After the fourth year, a new, original protocol must be submitted to continue this work.
