Animal welfare regulations and Public Health Service policy require institutions to
ensure that people caring for or using animals are qualified to do so. Oklahoma State
University (OSU) is charged with providing training opportunities to meet these regulations.
Consequently, all personnel (e.g., principal investigators/instructors (PIs), research
faculty/staff, graduate students, laboratory technicians, students, etc.) involved
in animal care and/or use of live vertebrate animals in research, teaching, or testing
at OSU must complete prescribed mandatory training prior to protocol approval and
prior to working with animals. For additional information see Policy # IACUC-006.
OSU offers an initial orientation training session and an online web-based training
course provided through the Collaborative Institutional Training Initiative (CITI),
which is hosted by the University of Miami. We also have a resource library located
in the IACUC office with various videos and reference books. If you would like to
review these materials, please contact the IACUC Manager at 405.744.3592 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
