IACUC Office Staff:

The University of Wisconsin-Madison has four Animal Care and Use Committees

Oversight of humane and ethical use of animals in research is required by federal law. Research institutions that are registered with the USDA, and that hold an Assurance from the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare, must appoint an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to perform this oversight. IACUCs have legal responsibilities to review, approve, monitor, and withdraw approval of animal activities on an ongoing basis.

Most research institutions have one IACUC, but the University of Wisconsin-Madison has four. They represent the
College of Agricultural and Life Science
School of Medicine and Public Health
School of Veterinary Medicine
College of Letters and Sciences and Vice Chancellor Office for Research and Graduate Education

These IACUCs ensure that the care and use of animals on campus is ethical and humane by consulting federal regulations, veterinary standards of care, campus policies, and facility standard operating procedures. The IACUCs

Deficiencies found during reviews and inspections must by law be resolved. If not, an institution can lose the ability to use animals and all federal funding for animal research.

All Campus Animal Planning and Advisory Committee
The All Campus Animal Planning and Advisory Committee (ACAPAC) advises the Institutional Official on matters related to oversight of the ethical and humane use of animals in all university research, teaching, and outreach activities. The ACAPAC membership includes the Attending Veterinarian for the campus, the chairs of the school and college IACUCs, researchers with active animal programs, animal facility managers, and representatives of UW Legal Services. Subject matter experts are invited to participate in ACAPAC activities as needed. Learn more about the ACAPAC's charge and see its meeting calendar.
