Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)

The MedStar Health Research Institute established the IACUC under the guidelines of the Association for Accreditation and Assessment of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC) to oversee the humane conduct of animal studies. The IACUC is responsible for the initial and continuing reviewing of all research studies involving animals done at any MedStar Institution. Federal regulations require that any research protocol involving the use of animals be reviewed and approved by the IACUC. The IACUC consists of members with varying backgrounds who are knowledgeable in animal regulations, humane treatment of animals, law, and research.
