Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

An Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee is appointed by institutions that use animals in teaching and/or research. The purpose of the IACUC is to make sure that Montclair State University and the covered entities are in compliance with the Animal Welfare Regulations.

The Three R’s of animal research: Replace the use of animals whenever possible. Reduce the number of animals needed to a minimum. Refine tests to cause animals the least amount of distress.
