Researchers working with non-human animals must be properly trained and certified in the responsible conduct of research. Non-human animal research falls under different federal and state laws and certifications than human subjects research. Refer to the Animal Resources Program Guidelines and Procedures. Additionally, anyone engaging in non-human animals research should consult with UAB's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee.
UAB follows the guidelines laid out by the Institute for Laboratory Animal Research (ILAR), Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, Eighth Edition.
