College of Letters and Sciences, and Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education Centers (LSVC) IACUC

The LSVC IACUC oversees a wide variety of biomedical, ecological, behavioral, and wildlife studies, including all non-human primate studies at the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center (WNPRC) and the Harlow Primate Laboratory. PIs should note that an IACUC-approved protocol may not be required for observational-only wildlife studies in the field that do not involve contact with the animals. Contact the IACUC office (, 608-265-3989) or an RARC veterinarian for more information.

The WNPRC offers comprehensive animal research support, from study development and protocol writing through pathology services. Access to animal facilities is strictly controlled, and special training requirements apply.

For nonprimate animal facility information, contact an RARC veterinarian or the IACUC office (, 608-265-3989).
