Review Process

Animal Care and Use Committee

Review Process

The IACUC oversees the specific use of animals by formally reviewing animal use protocols and granting approval prior to the start of animal protocols.

  • At MUSC-CAF, we use full committee review for all animal use protocols.

  • Monthly timeline for animal protocol review is shown on the right.

  • If a revised protocol is submitted after the 45-day revision period, it is considered as a new submission.

  • Start date of any new protocols, depending on the duration of the review process, is about 2 months after submission.
