    Animal Transfers

    The IACUC provides a mechanism for research animals purchased on one approved protocol to be transferred to another IACUC-approved protocol. Transfer must consider any prior use of the animal, as some limitations would prevent transfer of certain animals (contact the IACUC coordinator for details). Any animal transfers must include the LAF Office and IACUC to assure appropriate animal accounting information. Please print the Animal Transfer Form, complete, and deliver or fax (984-1742) the signed form to the LAF office. Signatures from both investigators are required prior to any billing/invoices being altered. The LAF Business Office can assist in coordinating animal transfers, contact Tammy Pruitt or Tammy Seaton.
