INSTITUTIONAL ANIMAL CARE AND USE COMMITTEE

Morehead State University's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is a federally mandated committee made up of faculty, staff and persons unaffiliated with the University charged with ensuring that the institution complies with federal policies safeguarding animals as subjects in research, testing and teaching.

All research, teaching and/or testing conducted at MSU involving animal subjects must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC.

Revision Date: Advisory Committee is mandated by the Public Health Service (PHS) Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals. Last revision November 3, 2022.

Membership

  • IACUC members' terms are three-year terms
  • Chairs of the IACUC are elected by the members to serve 1-year terms
  • There are no term limits
  • We desire members to remain on the committees for continuity and expertise – therefore, when a member's term is complete, they are usually asked to serve another term if willing.

IACUC MEMBERS

For any questions regarding the IACUC, please contact Janet Cline, Director of Research Integrity and Compliance, at 606-783-2541 or jl.cline@moreheadstate.edu.
