Institutional Animal Care & Use Committee

Any member of Barnard College who plans to initiate research involving animals must submit a protocol for review by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee of Columbia University prior to beginning the project. The Principal Investigator (PI) on an animal protocol form must be an Officer of Instruction with a full-time appointment and have the rank of Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, or Instructor. Senior Research Scientists/Scholars and Research Scientists/Scholars may also serve as PIs and submit an animal protocol form.
