Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

Policy #0102

“Access to Animal Housing Facilities” 


Members of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) of Albert Einstein College of Medicine and veterinarians of the Institute for Animal Studies (IAS) have the responsibility and authority to inspect any laboratory animal at any time, and must have access to all animals, including those which may be housed within a principal investigator’s laboratory.  If animals will be housed in a laboratory for more than 12 hours, the Principal Investigator will provide a key to the laboratory to the IAS.  During such an inspection, IACUC members and IAS veterinarians will make every effort not to disturb in-progress experiments.
