University of Wisconsin-Madison Policy to Ensure that Federal Funds Are Not Expended for Unapproved Animal Research

It is the policy of the University of Wisconsin-Madison that any animal research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison can only be carried out after an animal care and use protocol has been approved by an appropriate UW IACUC as specified by federal assurance.

Policy:

It is the policy of the University of Wisconsin-Madison that any animal research conducted at the University of Wisconsin-Madison can only be carried out after an animal care and use protocol has been approved by an appropriate UW IACUC as specified by federal assurance. Should an instance arise in which animal experimentation is conducted without protocol approval by an IACUC the non-compliance must be reported to the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare and to the appropriate Associate Dean for Research and the Institutional Official. Our IACUCs take appropriate actions, suspend all research related to the unapproved protocol and retrain the laboratory personnel. Moreover, if the research is supported by any source of federal funds, University will ensure that the unapproved animal-related expense component is not funded with federal funds. The appropriate Associate Dean for Research will notify Research and Sponsored Programs and the appropriate departmental and/or school/college administrator that non-federal funding must be used to cover the expenses associated with the animal-related portion of the non-approved research and ensure the integrity of spending federal funds.
