The IACUC at Seton Hall University is charged with the responsibility of ensuring the proper care, use, and humane treatment of animals used in research, teaching, and training at Seton Hall. Animal facilities are maintained by the Departments of Biology and Psychology (College of Arts & Science) and the Department of Neuroscience (School of Health and Medical Science). All faculty, staff, and students working with animals in Seton Hall facilities are obligated to follow the high standard of care as mandated by the Animal Welfare Act and Public Health Service Policy.
To fulfill this obligation the IACUC follows The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and has a letter of assurance filed with The Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW).
Any research project, class activity, or testing procedure involving the use of animals must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC before initiation. The process for submitting a project, activity or testing procedure for review, is outlined in the IACUC Review Process.
