Animal Welfare Assurance #:  A3754-01

Vertebrate animals may share in varying degree many sensory, emotional, and cognitive responses with humankind.  It is essential that we assume responsibility for their welfare and that animal use for research or teaching purposes be conducted in a humane, compassionate manner.  To justify the ethical costs of using live animals in research, teaching, or testing, there must be reasonable expectation that such usage will contribute to the advancement of knowledge, which may eventually benefit humankind and/or animals.  No research, teaching, or testing activities using live vertebrate animals shall be initiated until the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) has approved a protocol for such use.
