Local Animal Care Committees (LACCs)

In complement to the University Animal Care Committee, the University has in place two Local Animal Care Committees (LACCs).

The two LACCs are subcommittees of the University Animal Care Committee (UACC). Membership on the LACCs includes academic staff, non-animal users, veterinarians, administrators, technical staff, graduate students, and community representatives.

The primary responsibilities of the LACCs are to oversee the day-to-day operation of the individual animal research facilities, and to review/approve faculty research protocol proposals.

Protocol Submission Deadlines and Meeting Dates

Protocols must be submitted via MRAP by 11:59pm on the following dates to allow the LACC sufficient time to review each protocol prior to the meeting. Protocols received after the deadline will be deferred to the next monthly meeting.
