AAll research at Georgia State that involves animal subjects must be reviewed and approved in accordance with federal law and university policy. Georgia State's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is charged with overseeing compliance with these federal regulations. The goal of these regulations is to ensure the safety, respect and dignity of animal subjects involved in scientific research, and is a cooperative effort between the IACUC, IACUC Compliance Officer, Principal Investigators (PI), laboratory staff and animal care staff. See the IACUC Policies and Procedures Manual for additional information.
