Designated Review

  • If no member calls for a Full Committee review, the IACUC Chair will assign one Committee member and the University Veterinarian to complete the review.  

  • The reviewers’ comments and clarifications and/or stipulations are resolved with the investigator.  

  • The Designated IACUC reviewer or the IACUC Chair may at any point call for a Full Committee Review. 

  • The IACUC is required to ensure that all research described in a grant application or proposal is entirely consistent with any corresponding protocol(s) reviewed and approved by the IACUC.  

  • Any discrepancies must be resolved prior to the start of the project.  

  • The IACUC works with Sponsored Project Administration to establish that an appropriate connection is made between the application and the protocol being reviewed.
