The Shenandoah IACUC meets regularly to approve animal use protocols, deal with issues that may arise from animal use, and perform routine inspections of animal facilities.
Our goal is to insure that animal research is being conducted safely and humanely.
Submitting a Proposal
Shenandoah University faculty and students conducting research involving vertebrate animals must obtain IACUC approval prior to collecting data. While students can help work on a proposal, all proposals must have a faculty sponsor.
Proposals for the next review cycle are due by January 18, 2020.
