The FGCU Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) reviews all research and teaching projects that involve the use of or possible impact on animals to ensure compliance with federal regulations. The IACUC review ensures that the use of animals is justified and any animal pain or suffering is minimized.
