Our Animal Welfare Services (AWS) unit provides staff and organizational support to the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) to ensure that vertebrate animal research at the UO occurs in an efficient and compliant manner. AWS works with the UO research community to ensure the responsible and ethical conduct of research with vertebrate animals.
For information on animal research, including information about the IACUC, please see the links below.
COMING SOON! The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation (OVPRI) has kicked off a project to implement a new tool to support the IACUC and animal research community in late summer 2022.
The new IACUC tool is part of the phased implementation of the Research Administration Portal (RAP), a suite of integrated tools that will support researchers and staff as they work through compliance and administration activities. In a world where compliance is becoming increasingly complex, this system will integrate information and ease the burden on investigators.
