Starting a new project that involves the use of animals in research at UIC is a 2-step process:
- Approval of a UIC Protocol for Animal Use. Information on the protocol approval process may be found on the Animal Care Committee website (http://www.uic.edu/depts/ovcr/research/protocolreview/acc/).
- Orientation with the veterinarian who oversees the species or area in which the protocol will take place. To schedule an orientation, please contact the appropriate veterinarian:
BRL Rodent Colony – Dr. Jeanette Purcell
COMRB Rodent Colony – Dr. Cyndy Adams
Large animals – Dr. Kelly Garcia
Primates – Dr. Lisa Halliday
