Laboratory Animal Care


University Laboratory Animal Resources (ULAR), which reports to the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies, provides a comprehensive program of animal care for all laboratory animal colonies, as well as training for researchers. ULAR also participates in developing institutional policies designed to insure humane treatment of animals and to assist investigators in maintaining high quality care of animals used in MSU projects.

Additional information regarding both general principles and specific issues that apply to the care and use of animals at Michigan State University is available through ULAR and the IACUC.
