IACUC Schedule of Meetings:
The IACUC will meet during the Summer, 2014 on an as needed basis.  Meeting schedule for Fall, 2013 and Spring 2014 will be announced once the new academic year begins.

Using Animals for Individual Faculty/Student Research
  Winthrop faculty and student who conduct research using vertebrate animals need to complete the Animal Study Protocol Review form (IACUC001) and any additional schedules that apply to the research.  This includes animals used on or off campus, and animals in field studies.
 
Using Animals in the Classroom
  If you teach a class in which students use vertebrate animals for classroom exercises or for individual research projects,  complete the Classroom Study Form (IACUC002). This should only  be used if you know the type of projects that will be conducted and the types of animals that will be used. By signing the Classroom Study Form, you are indicating that you are acting as the "principal investigator" and you are taking responsibility to educate the students on the proper way to use the animals (See Animal Welfare Act and Appropriate animal use guidelines) and that you will monitor the student projects for compliance. You are also responsible for having the students complete a Student Research Project form (IACUC002S) that you will keep on file and make available to the IACUC upon request.  The Classroom Study Form is submitted academic year - one form for Fall, Spring and Summer sessions.

A student conducting research that is not covered by the approved Classroom Study protocol, must complete the Animal Study Protocol Review form (IACUC001), and receive IACUC approval before beginning the research.
Submission Process and Approval
  The Animal Study Protocol Review form (IACUC001) must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the start of the research in order to ensure approval, and can be submitted at any time throughout the year.

The Classroom Study form (IACUC002) must be submitted at least 30 days prior to the start of the research, and can be submitted at any time throughout the year.  You are encouraged to submit the form at the start of the semester for the semester in which the research will be conducted in order to ensure adequate time for review and any necessary revisions and resubmission.
