Overview of Animal Use

The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is devoted to assuring the finest care and most humane use of our experimental animals. The IACUC works closely with our faculty, students and staff to ensure that meaningful scientific research is conducted that:

  1. avoids or minimizes discomfort, distress, and pain in experimental animals consistent with sound scientific practices
  2. uses the minimum number of animals necessary to obtain valid results, and
  3. considers non-animal models wherever possible

Stony Brook University operates under Assurance #A3011-01, approved by the NIH Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW)
