About Us


Institutions that use animals for research, teaching, research training, and biological testing must establish an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to oversee and evaluate all aspects of the institution’s animal care and use program involving any vertebrate.

The Office of Regulatory Affairs (ORA) is committed to helping investigators facilitate research.  We are happy to answer any research related questions and assist with the submission of all IACUC applications and forms.
