2021%205:13:56%20PM


Animal research protocols involving the manipulation of biological specimens, the use of actual or potential biohazardous materials, and/or recombinant or synthetic nucleic acids, require IBC approval. Please refer to the IBC webpage or consult with the IBC Office (IBCoffice@lsuhsc.edu) regarding the submission process and additional training requirements.

If IBC review is necessary, IACUC approval of a protocol will not be given until IBC exemption or approval is received by the IACUC Office.
