It also includes a chapter on FDA-regulated research.
The Animal Research Handbook covers regulatory requirements and Institute of Comparative Medicine and Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee policies and procedures for faculty and staff who conduct research involving animals. Any research using animals must be approved by IACUC.
The Research Environmental Health and Safety Handbook covers the multiple EH&S programs, including Laboratory Safety, Biological Safety, Fire Safety, Laser Safety, Occupational Health and Safety and Controlled Substances. The Research Radiation Safety Handbook is a companion resource to the Research Environmental Health and Safety Handbook for faculty and staff who conduct research involving radioactive materials or radiation producing equipment. Performing research in a laboratory requires first completing required EH&S training. Contact your supervisor or the Chair about this.
