Animal Research

Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC)


The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) oversees the use of animals for research, teaching, and testing conducted at or by TROY. The Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare defines an animal as any live, vertebrate animal used or intended for use in research, research training, experimentation, or biological testing or for related purposes. If your research includes live vertebrae animals please contact Dr. Brian Helms for up to date procedures for approval.


ALL research conducted on animals by any TROY faculty, staff or student, whether funded or unfunded, must be reviewed and approved by the Animal Research Review Board before it may be conducted.
