Submission and Meeting Dates

All protocols and amendments are now prepared in the e-IACUC system and must undergo online veterinary consultation and department review prior to IACUC review.   This consultation and review may take up to a month, depending upon the complexity of the proposed research. Please submit documents as soon as possible to allow ample time for this process. Until protocols have gone through the veterinary consultation and department review, they are not forwarded to the IACUC committee for review.

Principal Investigators should submit renewal protocols three months prior to expiration to avoid a lapse in approval and suspension of research activities.  This will allow time for the entire review process.  A ULAR Protocol Consultant is available for assistance with protocol preparation: Angela Phillips at

Protocols which complete the veterinary consultation and department review are subsequently reviewed by the IACUC according to the following schedule:
