Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

Bowdoin College is committed to the proper and humane treatment of all animal research subjects. All members of the College - faculty, staff, and students alike - are expected to show respect and regard for any living creature subjected to investigative procedures. Unnecessary pain to any creature is to be avoided. Awareness and discussion of these issues are part of the professional development and responsibility of faculty and the education of students.

The IACUC will meet on the third Tuesday of February, March, April, September, October and November. The Committee will schedule additional meetings as needed. Investigators should submit applications one to two months prior to the desired starting time. This will allow the Committee time to review applications and request any necessary modifications. No research may begin before written approval has been issued. No research animals may be obtained prior to receiving written approval.
