Laboratory Animal Resources

Laboratory Animal Resources (LAR) provides services for the care of animals used in research and education, thus ensuring humane animal care that is in compliance with federal, state, and university laws, regulations, and policies.

Prior to initiating a project that involves animals, researchers consult with an LAR veterinarian. LAR services include a comprehensive veterinary care program for animals used in teaching and research; training in experimental techniques for faculty, staff, and students; assistance with experimental techniques; procurement of animals from approved sources; animal housing provided in conventional, isolation, or containment environments; daily husbandry; and transportation of animals.
