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, recombinant or synthetic nucleic acid molecules, or human materials in animals 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.
