For 2021: If you did not have an approved protocol in 2020 then you must submit a new initial protocol for 2021

All individuals performing research at the MBL on vertebrate animals are required to obtain approval from the MBL Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee. The lead PI on the project should fill out the appropriate form (initial or renewal) and submit the protocol by emailing the completed form to iacuc@mbl.edu. All IACUC applications must be submitted 6 weeks in advance of first use to ensure approval prior to experimentation.

IACUC Information:


Please note that the initial and renewal applications have been revised December 2019. Read through the following carefully to ensure you fill out the tables accordingly (add additional rows as needed).
