Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

The Boise State Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is an administrative compliance committee established to oversee the university’s animal program, facilities and research projects involving the use of animals.

  • the research, training, and testing is conducted under the auspices of the university, regardless of funding sources;
  • the research, training, and testing is conducted under the direction of any faculty, staff, student or agent of the university in connection with his/her university responsibilities; or
  • the research, training, and testing is conducted under the direction of any faculty, staff, student or agent of the university using any property or facility of the university.
