Research Involving Animals

Winston-Salem State University’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is the committee responsible for ensuring the protection and care of vertebrate animals being used in research studies at Winston-Salem State University. The IACUC is charged with this task while facilitating animal research in ways consistent with long-standing ethical principles and federal, state and university regulations. All research projects or instructional practices that involve animal subjects must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC prior to initiation.
