​Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

As part of the transition of the Stanley Manne Children's Research Institute to the Northwestern Streeterville campus, Northwestern University has assumed oversight of the animal care and use program at the Research Institute, effective January 1, 2016. The Northwestern University IACUC (NU IACUC) has accepted the Lurie Children’s IACUC’s review for all studies, including the current approved study timeframes.

The NU IACUC does not use Cayuse IACUC to review animal protocols; each investigator has been sent Microsoft Word versions of their approved studies. Until those studies require a de novo review, any amendments to these studies may be used by modifying these Word applications. Please note that per NU IACUC Policies and Procedures, annual reviews must only be completed for animals regulated by the USDA (annual renewals for rodents and zebrafish will no longer be required). All new studies will need to be submitted through their electronic submission and review system.

All questions should be directed to the NU IACUC Office, including Mandy Kozlowski, the IACUC Office Director.
