All individuals planning to conduct activities involving nonhuman vertebrate animals must submit the Application for Use of Animals in Research and Teaching. Since the IACUC includes faculty members, reviews conducted during the summer months will require more time than during the academic year.
Researchers must submit one electronic copy to firstname.lastname@example.org and a signed copy of the last page of the Application for Use of Animals.
Animal Care and Use regulations require that approved IACUC protocols must be periodically reviewed. Appalachian requires an annual review until the third year, which requires a de novo, or new full review.
Any proposed changes to approved animal use requires an IACUC review. No new activities can be conducted on non human vertebrate animals without the IACUC’s documented approval of those activities.
