Since The Ohio State University receives funding from the National Institutes of Health, the OSU research community must comply with The NIH Guidelines for Research Involving Recombinant DNA Molecules. In order to comply with these NIH Guidelines, the purchase or generation of transgenic animals, including rodents, requires registration or protocol submission to the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC). To help identify studies using transgenic animals and assist in determining the appropriate IBC form, the IACUC Animal Use Protocol (AUP) has been updated (see “Use of Transgenic Animals” section 12c).

For assistance regarding the IACUC review process, please contact the IACUC Office at IACUCinfo@osu.edu, 292-4494, or 292-0409. Assistance regarding the IBC review process is available by contacting Jennifer Spohn, IBC Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or 247-1562.
