Reporting Animal Welfare Concerns

The IACUC relies on the observations of individuals to ensure the well-being of all research animals.  All research personnel as well as animal husbandry staff are encouraged to contact the IACUC Administrative Office if they:
  • 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, email, or in writing and can be made anonymously - If you see something, say something!
