Requirements for Working with Animals
Who needs to submit an IACUC application?
If you will conduct research on live vertebrate animals, whether for research, instruction, production (breeding), health surveillance, field studies or on tissues collected from live animals (this does not pertain to animal tissue purchased “off the shelf” from a vendor), you must first submit an IACUC application for approval. All research conducted by Georgia State University faculty, students, and staff which uses animal subjects, regardless of the source of funding or even when no funds are involved, must have prior approval from the Georgia State IACUC.
To find out what training is required, please see the Required Education Document. You must complete the required online AALAS Learning Library training. If you are a first-time user of the AALAS Learning Library, you will need to enroll. View the “How to enroll in and use the AALAS Learning Library” document to learn more. Contact the IACUC Office at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further assistance to determine which modules you need to complete.
Animal use protocol
All protocol applications and amendments must be submitted by the first business day of the month to be considered at the monthly IACUC meeting (see calendar).
After your protocol is approved and you have completed the required training contact Matthew Davis for access to facilities containing animals.
