Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee - IACUC


Executive Review- Protocol Identical to Previously Approved Protocol

  • To be considered identical or substantially similar, the project must have the same hypothesis, specific aims and animal model.
  • The chair alone (or his/her designee from the Committee) reviews and approves actions in this category. 

  • This category captures review of actions that do not require an actual Committee review, e.g., minor amendments, some continuing reviews, previously approved protocols that have been resubmitted or identical protocols submitted to different funding agencies, protocols with no direct animal use, or when funds will be used for salary support only on a previously approved protocol.

  • 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.
