News & Events

AAALAC International is a private, nonprofit organization that promotes the humane treatment of animals in science through voluntary accreditation and assessment programs.

If you have not already done so, now is the time to register for the virtual IU Bloomington Indiana CTSI retreat on April 22nd (8:45 AM – 2 PM).  The registration is free and is open to faculty, students, staff, and the general public.  The theme of the event is "Addressing mental health in Indiana: From community needs to bench science discoveries."  

Indiana University took the unprecedented step of largely hibernating its research mission in response to the public health threats posed by the COVID-19 virus in March 2020 by restricting access to buildings and research activities. This document will help provide guidance for the staged reopening of research laboratories at IU, while still following procedures meant to control the transmission of COVID-19 between individuals working in research laboratories. All guidance should follow local safety and advisory warnings.

Many newly developed animal models involve the transfer of cells, serum or other tissue -derived products into live rodents. These biologicals and tissues can serve as repositories for adventitious rodent pathogens that, when used in animal studies, can alter research outcomes and result in endemic outbreaks.
