Animal Use - Review Schedule

Levels of Review

There are only two valid methods of IACUC review allowed by the PHS Policy:

  • Full-committee review by a convened quorum of the members of the IACUC, or
  • Designated member review by one or more members, employed only after all voting members have been provided an opportunity to call for full-committee review.

 

Designated member review

Designated member review (DMR) is conducted by two (2) IACUC members.

 

DMR reviews are on-going throughout the year. There is no submission deadline. Protocols are reviewed in the order in which they are received.

 

Please note DMR may be utilized only after all members have been provided the opportunity to call for full-committee review. After the protocol is received there is a five (5) business day wait period for members to review and vote for DMR review.

 

Full Committee Reviews

Full committee reviews generally occur on the second Friday of the month. The agenda and study materials must be provided to the IACUC members in advance of the meeting with enough time to thoroughly review your study. The agenda closes the Wednesday of the week prior to the meeting to give members sufficient time to review the submission prior to the meeting.

 

Submissions must be received by the office prior to the agenda closing.
