Animal Resources Program
The ARP provides for the procurement, husbandry, and health care of animals used in research and teaching. Scientific and technical support are also provided by the ARP for Wake Forest University (WFU) programs using animals in teaching and research. WFU is committed to providing a high-quality program of animal care and use in compliance with state and federal laws.
The ARP operates in accordance with the standards and policies of the US Department of Agriculture's Animal Welfare Information Center (AWIC) and the Department of Health and Human Services' Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW). This program has been accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC), since 1966.
Before ordering any animals, the Principal Investigator must have an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) approved protocol in place. For more information, please call or fax the number at right, or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
