Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee The role of the Regis University Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is to fulfill an Animal Welfare Act requirement and meet Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) regulations. The Regis University IACUC reviews and approves the use of vertebrate animals in teaching and research before that use is implemented. IACUC Membership IACUC members are appointed by the Provost. An IACUC must consist of at least five members, including: • One veterinarian with training or experience in laboratory animal science and medicine, who has direct or delegated authority and responsibility for activities involving animals at the institution. • One practicing scientist experienced in research with animals. • One member whose primary concerns are in a nonscientific area (e.g., ethicist, lawyer, member of the clergy). • One member who is not affiliated with the institution other than as a member of the IACUC.
