IACUC Meetings and Membership

The IACUC is comprised of faculty, staff, veterinarians and community members.

Meetings are scheduled on an as-needed basis, when a protocol is received that requires Full Committee Review (FCR). 

Upcoming deadlines:

Deadline for submission - October 7th, 2017
Deadline for submission - November 19th, 2017

Criterial for Full Committee Review:

Appalachian State has approved the following situations as requiring automatic Full Committee Review (FCR):

1. One or more species listed in the application are covered by the USDA, per the definition of “animal” in the Animal Welfare Act.

2. The PI has listed the USDA Pain Class as category E.

3. Multiple survival surgeries performed on same animal.

4. The procedures in the application are not listed as category E, but indicate a greater risk of pain, distress or unrelieved comfort to the animals than the listed Pain Class indicates.

Other situations may require FCR as determined by the IACUC on a case-by-case basis.
