Creating a New Animal Use Protocol (AUP)


Creating/Describing Your Own Procedures

1. To add a manually described procedure, click the  again.

2. This time in the pop-up window, go to the “Researcher-Described Procedure Section”.

3. Enter the name of the procedure and a detailed description (you can cut & paste a description from another document).

4. Click the  button to add the new procedure to the entry list below.

Notice next to the newly added procedure, the icon  is different! This icon represents a Researcher-Described procedure.

The Copy Description label indicates whether or not the description of the procedure will be carried over to the “Description of Procedures” on the previous page.

NOTE: There is no species assigned to the new procedure.

5. To assign a species or change a species for a procedure, click the (2) Assign Species Tab at the top of the pop-up window.

A table with a list of procedures will be available. Here, species can be assigned or removed from either IACUC Standardized or Research-Described procedures. This tab is important if (a) there are multiple species assigned to an individual Study Segment and (b) not all procedures will be performed on each species.

6. Check the Mouse - Mus box for the newly added procedure.

7. Click the  button to save and close the window.

The newly added Researcher-Described Procedure with description will be transferred to the Procedures section on the previous page.

You can modify or edit the descriptions once they are in the text box or reformat them using the formatting tools.

NOTES: Any changes to the standard procedural descriptions must be approved by the IACUC.

It is possible to enter procedural descriptions directly into the text box.

IACUC and ULAR veterinarians will be adding more standardized procedures as time goes by – this part of the new application system will be a work-in-progress for the foreseeable future. Researcher suggestions for standard procedures are welcome and encouraged.
