In a memo to researchers at the University of Oregon who are using vertebrate animals, the vice president for research and innovation announced plans to transition from two existing units (AqACS and ACS) into three units that support animal research and compliance. AqACS will remain unchanged and Animal Care Services (ACS) will be divided into a service center for terrestrial animals (TeACS) and a unit that will be completely focusing on efficiently fulfilling the UO’s animal care compliance responsibilities (Animal Welfare Services). This transition will begin immediately and will continue to occur in AY2016/2017. Drs. Cass Moseley and Bill Cresko will oversee the transition under the auspices of the Office of the Vice President of Research and Innovation.
