This overview will provide navigation through the submission process which will include all updated submission guidelines, protocol modifications, training requirements, and grant review, as well as common reasons for delay and compliance issues.
To begin, you must use Animal Research Online (ARO) for all new submissions.
Please note that failure to renew a protocol that covers currently housed animals, jeopardizes the continuation of the animal protocol and could result in suspension of animal use privileges and confiscation of animals.
Medical Surveillance Program For Animal Users
