Federal and Institutional policies dictate that any faculty, staff, or student associated with MSU has the right and the responsibility to report perceived deficiencies in the MSU animal care and use program.
If you witness incidences or practices that you believe are inappropriate, please voice your concerns to the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) by contacting:
-----Dr. Kimberly Peterson, IACUC Chair (x3-2327)
----- Any IACUC Member
----- Dr. Phil Prater, Attending Veterinarian (x3-9364)
----- Dr. Shannon Harr, Institutional Official (x3-2307)
Written concerns should be addressed to:
IACUC Chair or member
c/o the Office of Research & Sponsored Programs
Ginger Hall 901
And may be marked “Private and Confidential”
All concerns will be treated with the highest priority and confidentiality will be guaranteed. Initiating such concerns via appropriate channels in no way places an individual at risk to be discriminated against, or be subject to, any reprisal for reporting violations of any regulation or standard.
This policy is outlined in the Institutional Animal Care and Use Handbook. A copy of this handbook may be found at http://www2.moreheadstate.edu/files/units/research/iacuc/IACUC%20Handbook%205-09.pdf
