Committee Coordinator: Shirley Knothe-Riley
The ACUC: Livestock oversees the ethical use of farm production animals/ livestock (mainly pigs, poultry and ruminants). Research may involve small animal models for human nutrition and biomedical research.
The review committee consists of a veterinarian, animal technician(s), scientists who are knowledgeable in animal care and use with a variety of species, graduate students and community members. Ad hoc reviewers are called on periodically to provide additional expertise as required (e.g. statisticians, ethicists, Environmental Health and Safety/ Biosafety Officers, etc.). Please contact the Commitee Coordinator if you wish to volunteer to serve on a review committee.
Animal Service Unit
Agricultural, Food & Nutritional Sciences Animal Service (AFNSAS) provides veterinarian oversight and animal support services for the protocols reviewed by the Livestock ACUC.
