Overview of the IACUC Process

The IACUC application submission and approval process requires collaboration among the investigators, an attending veterinarian, IACUC reviewer(s) and the Office of Research Compliance (ORC). Investigators send completed IACUC applications and required submission materials (training certificates, standard operating procedures, etc.) to the ORC by email. After logging the protocol into our database and verifying that the submission is complete, the ORC distributes the protocol for review to the IACUC. Status of approval, clarifications requested by the IACUC, and requests to attend the IACUC meeting are communicated to investigators by email.
