“All University research involving human subjects, use of animals, radiation or radiological materials, or biohazardous materials must be reviewed and approved by the appropriate University committee(s) before the research is started. Graduate students are, with the assistance of their advisers, responsible for obtaining the necessary approval for their research. Verification of approval must be submitted to the School of Graduate Studies Office before the student’s master’s Program of Study or doctoral Application for Candidacy can be approved. For further information, contact the School of Graduate Studies Office or the Office of the Vice President for Research.”
Utah State University General Catalog 1998-2000, p. 63.
In experiments involving hazardous materials, the principal investigators may, under certain conditions, provide their own animal care. However, the caretakers will be subject to the same regulations as the LARC personnel and monitored by the LARC Supervisor. All animal caretakers must have training & thorough education responsibilities.
