The Radford University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is responsible for ensuring that the procurement, housing, care, and use of animals conforms to federal regulations. This responsibility applies to all research and teaching on campus and in the field, whether the source of funding is external to Radford University or internal.

IACUC Meeting Schedule:

The Radford University IACUC meets as often as necessary in order to review protocols or discuss policy.

Please allow at least 4-6 weeks for protocol review, depending on the complexity of the project and the extent of revisions required.

Where to Direct Questions or Concerns:

Questions concerning the approval process, animal protection regulations, etc. may be directed to the IACUC Office at irb-iacuc@radford.edu or 540-831-5290.  Alternatively, you may contact the Institutional Official, Dean Jacobsen, at ljacobsen@radford.edu or 540-831-5470.  All communication will be handled confidentially, if requested.

Comments and concerns may also be reported anonymously online. However, it is very difficult to provide any results, findings, or feedback, or to request additional information regarding anonymous comments or concerns. We strongly encourage anyone with such comments or concerns to report them confidentially and provide the IACUC Office with at least minimal contact information. The Comment Form does not require contact information to be provided but the IACUC Committee and IACUC Office greatly appreciates at least minimal contact information being provided so that the most thorough investigation of the concerns may be conducted.
