Institutional Animal Care
and Use Committee
Protis is an online application system in support of research activities that require approval by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) or the Institutional Review Board (IRB).
Protis is the sole application method for IRB submissions. Paper forms will no longer be accepted.
All faculty, staff, students and cooperators using USU facilities are required to adhere to the federal standards for the use of animals in research, teaching, and training. The validity and effectiveness of programs that use animals will be the best possible when high quality animals receive quality care in a properly designed and managed animal facility. The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), appointed by the President of USU, is charged with the responsibility of ensuring that the Animal Welfare Act policies and procedures are followed.
