IACUC Personnel Requirements

Proposed personnel (UC Santa Cruz faculty, staff, students, and non-UCSC affiliated researchers) on UCSC IACUC protocol applications and amendments must complete two requirements—the online CITI training and the UCSC Occupational Health Surveillance System (OHSS) assessment/clearance.* Protocols cannot be approved until research personnel have met these requirements. Please start these requirements before submitting a protocol or amendment application as the requirements can take some time to complete.

*Principal investigators can affirm non-affiliated personnel have completed animal care and use training and occupational health and safety assessment at the individual's home institution by checking the box in the the last column of section A.1. in protocol application and amendment forms.
