Animal Care Service

The Animal Care Service is one of the research services offered by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Engagement. The members of the Animal Care Office staff provide the specialized husbandry and veterinary care for the laboratory animals used in teaching and research activities at the university. The Office serves as a resource for all students, faculty, and investigators needing training in or seeking any information about the handling, care, and use of laboratory animals. A production service for monoclonal and polyclonal antibodies is available to investigators. Questions and requests regarding requirements for animal care and use protocols, other documentation, training or information should be directed to the Animal Care Office, Research Administration Building, tel. (413) 545-0668. Additional information about the Animal Care Office and the IACUC can be found at the university’s Research Website:
