Animal research at Cornell University is managed by the IACUC Office, CARE, and collaborating units. 

Before purchasing animals or using animals for research, teaching or testing, you must have an approved IACUC protocol. Before your protocol can be approved, you (and personnel working with you) must complete required training. Access the AALAS training website. 

Who can Help?

  • Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). The Cornell University IACUC reviews protocol applications and ensures compliance with the Animal Welfare Act and other regulatory bodies involving use of animals in research and in teaching.
  • Center for Animal Resources and Education (CARE). CARE provides high quality animal care and veterinary services, and advises and educates researchers, staff and students on animal experimentation issues while promoting best practices for the responsible use of animals.
