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 firstname.lastname@example.org. All reports are confidential.
An alternative avenue for potential reporting is a secondary email address email@example.com 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."
