Veterinary Medicine: Animal Use & IACUC
Useful resources for veterinary medicine faculty and students.
According to federal law, every
research institution that uses animals for research or instruction must
have an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to oversee and
evaluate animal care and use.
Part of UF’s IACUC review process includes “a search for alternatives to live animal use and any potentially painful/distressful procedures has been documented in the form.” The HSC Library offers comprehensive searches of the relevant literature performed by a librarian, which can be particularly helpful in this step of the IACUC process. Follow the link above to request a search. HSC faculty members receive this service free of charge; IACUC searches typically take 1-2 weeks.
