Animal Care and Use Concerns
To help ensure that laboratory animals receive humane care and use of treatment in accordance with the highest ethical standards, laws, regulations and policies governing animal research, the SIUE IACUC will review and, if warranted, address any animal-related concerns raised by the public or SIUE employee. The IACUC will review each concern in a timely and systematic manner and, when necessary, take prompt, appropriate corrective actions.
