On Tuesday, Apr. 19th, the USDA completed an unannounced routine facilty inspection of Lehigh's Animal Research Program. No non-compliant issues were identified. This successful inspection serves to highlight the efforts of Lehigh's Animal Care and Use program to ensure that the use of animals in research remains in full compliance with institutional and federal guidelines and that all animals receive the highest level of care.
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) ensures that the use of animals in research is in accordance with institutional and federal guidelines and to assist the faculty whose research and teaching activities involve animals.
