The IACUC Protocol

Use the "IACUC Protocol" to submit your proposed activity to the IACUC for review and authorization.

  1. We suggest that you use the Microsoft Word version of the protocol instructions as a working document. It can be used like any Microsoft Word document. 

  2. When all the sections of the protocol are in final form, open the actual IACUC Protocol Form 

  3. Paste in all of the sections, and then submit.

Note: There are specific submission deadlines for each of the quarterly IACUC meetings.

The IACUC does not accept direct submissions from students. If you are a student, when your faculty research mentor is satisfied with your IACUC submission materials, provide him/her with an electronic copy, completed as explained above. This document will be submitted by your faculty research mentor, using the above link. IACUC feedback will be provided directly to the faculty research mentor, who will work with you on requested clarifications and revisions.
