The University of Vermont (UVM) is committed to the humane
use of animals in activities related to research, testing and teaching.
There are two separate organizational components at UVM designated to
appropriate implementation of all aspects of the animal care and use
IACUC - The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee is UVM's central review body for matters relating to the care, use and treatment of animals in these areas and is located in the Research Protections Office.
OACM - The Office of Animal Care Management, with the University Veterinarian as its director, is responsible for the oversight of all animal care and use and for ensuring compliance with federal, state and local regulations.
