IACUC Committee

According to OLAW (Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare) the IACUC membership must consist of the following:

  • One Veterinarian with training or experience with lab animal science and medicine, who has direct or delegated authority and responsibility for activities involving animals at William & Mary
  • One practicing scientist  experienced in research with animals
  • One member whose primary concerns are in a non-scientific area (ethicist, clergy, lawyer)
  • One member who is not affiliated with the university in any way other than as a member of the IACUC.

William & Mary has a properly constituted IACUC.

For questions, please contact Cindy Corbett in the Office of Sponsored Programs.

Animal Welfare concerns should be reported to animalcare@wm.edu.  All reports are confidential. 

An alternative avenue for potential reporting is a secondary email address reportconcern@wm.edu which is sent to the Compliance and Equity Office.

There is no restriction on who may report a concern.  Despite the reporting method, per The Guide, 8th edition (p.23-24), the "Responsibility for review and investigation of these concerns rests with the IO (Institutional Official) and the IACUC."
