Applying for IACUC Approval 

All research, teaching and/or testing involving live vertebrate animal use must be reviewed and approved by the NKU Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) before any work can begin. Review of an Animal Care and Use Protocol by the IACUC is required regardless of animal use site (on campus or elsewhere), funding source, species or animal numbers. The IACUC protocol must be submitted by the Principal Investigator (PI) as the responsible party for all animal activities listed in the protocol. Only persons holding faculty appointments, professional researcher or instructor positions may serve as Principal Investigators on animal protocols.
