Animal Subjects Protections
The University of Rhode Island (URI) is deeply committed to the ethical treatment of animals in research. The use of animals is essential to the teaching, outreach, and research missions of URI. Significant benefits to the health and welfare of both animals and humans have resulted from animal use in research, and continued use is crucial to future advancements. Without the use of animals, adequate instruction of students in many programs such as agriculture, biological sciences, and veterinary science would be impossible.
The URI Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is responsible for overseeing the provisions for the care and well -being of animals used for research and educational purposes at the University and serves the public by ensuring compliance with all legal and ethical standards regarding the use of vertebrate animals in research and teaching at URI.
URI operates under USDA Registration # 15-R-0004.
URI operates under PHS Federalwide Assurance # A3690-01, approved from April 6, 2011 until expiration on December 18, 2018.
