Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee​

The UPR-RRP-IACUC oversees the Program of Animal Care and Use in our Institution.  Our committee was constituted to comply with the Animal Welfare Act (AWA) and the Public Health Service (PHS). We recommend all researchers, students and personnel working with animals in a previously approved protocol or planning to do so in the future, to familiarize themselves with all the topics in this web page and to explore the Useful Links section to learn more about this topic.  If you have any doubt or any concern regarding the care and use of animals in our Institution please contact us at IACUC.
