Information About the Animal Use Protocol (AUP) Required for Research or Instructional Use of Live Vertebrate Animals at Texas A&M

Any research or instructional use of live vertebrate animals by Texas A&M faculty, staff, or students requires the approval of an animal use protocol (AUP) by the appropriate Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC). The AUP must be approved before any animal user may acquire, house, or use animals.
