Collaborative Research

Research may involve more than one institution and be within the responsibility of more than one Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC).

If UCSC is engaged in animal care and use research—using facilities on the UCSC campus, or UCSC is prime awardee of a grant—then IACUC approval for UCSC’s role must be obtained. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) may be required to allow animal care and use projects to collaborate with outside institutions.
