All research, teaching or testing that involves animal subjects or the use of animal tissue must be accurately described in an Animal Use Protocol that is reviewed and approved by the University Animal Care Committee (UACC) Animal Research Ethics Board (AREB). No animal use can take place until a Certificate of Approval has been issued. Search the Knowledge Base to access Animal Ethics forms.
The AREB meetings occur twice per month and comprise 2 different boards (AREB-1 and AREB-2) with the exception of the AREB chair. Each AREB is responsible for the review of new animal use protocol applications and all Category of Invasiveness, Level D and Level E annual renewals.
