About The UCUCA

University policy and federal law require a review of projects for humane treatment and judicious use of vertebrate animals. At the University of Michigan, adherence to this policy and federal law is assured by the University Committee on Use and Care of Animals (UCUCA) through review of the Animal Use Application, conducting animal facility and laboratory inspections, and providing training and guidance for animal care and use personnel. In fulfilling these responsibilities, the UCUCA Office staff and Committee members work hand-in-hand to ensure and promote the humane and judicious use of animals in research, teaching, and testing.
