Report a Concern

The Division of Research and the Research Integrity and Oversight (RIO) Office, together with the IACUC, are committed to ensuring the ethical treatment of animals. Any concerns of violations of policy or regulations should be brought to the attention of the IACUC.

It is the University of Houston's policy that the procurement, housing, care and use of animals should conform to The Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals (PDF) and other relevant federal or state policies and procedures. The policy applies to all research and teaching involving the use of laboratory animals whether funded from external or internal sources.
