Committee on Animal Care solicits feedback

The Committee on Animal Care is soliciting information that would aid MIT's effort to maintain the humane care of animals used in research.

Established to ensure that MIT researchers working with animals comply with federal, state, local and institutional regulations on animal care, the Committee on Animal Care inspects animals, animal facilities and laboratories, and reviews all research and teaching exercises that involve animals before experiments are performed.

If you have information about inadequate animal care or treatment, please call 617-253-9436 or call Professor Claude Canizares, vice president for research and associate provost, at 617-253-3206. All concerns about animal care will be handled confidentially and will be investigated by the committee. The panel will report its findings to anyone who has such concerns, as well as to the vice president for research and associate provost.
