Laboratory Animal Use

All laboratory animal work at the University of Maryland must be approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) .   All work involving the use of infectious agents or non-human primates must also be approved by the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC)

The University has put into effect a Laboratory Animal Occupational Health Program‌, which is designed to protect the health of both personnel and laboratory animals.  Part of this program involves the completion of a medical questionnaire:  Laboratory Animal Exposure Risk Assessment Form.  If you are not already a registered user, you will need to register and login to MyEHS, before accessing the form.

The University has also developed a written Animal Worker Safety Program. This document covers the safety programs that the University has in place to protect employees that work with research animals.
