- see animals that appear to be in pain/distress;
- witness or are involved in an incident that may impact the welfare of laboratory animals at UCI;
- have a concern about the conduct of personnel handling laboratory animals;
- have a concern about protocol integrity or possible scientific misconduct.
These reports may be made by phone, in writing or email and can be made anonymously.
