Overview of Services

Many resources and services are available through Comparative Medicine (CM) at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. The categories to the left provide information that is presented in general terms with emphasis on procedures, policies and services that affect our users most frequently.

Additional information may be available from the CM Office and UNMC's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).

The use of laboratory animals in research and teaching is a fundamental necessity for continued progress in the biomedical sciences. The use of animals in biomedical research, teaching and testing constitutes a special privilege to the scientific community. Therefore, it is incumbent upon each investigator and his/her staff to fulfill both moral and legal responsibilities regarding the humane care and use of animals. Comparative Medicine is available to help support these aims.
