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.
