Electronic submission is required for all IACUC applications. (For details see: Electronic Submission Process in the policy section.)
The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) has adopted this form for submission, review and approval for procurement of whole dead animals (cadavers) for use in research and teaching activities (See Exempt Animal Use Activities; IACUC Policy 21). Procurement of animal parts; such as organs or tissues do not need IACUC approval. IACUC approval is good for one year. Activities that at any point involve live animals must be reviewed and approved by the IACUC on the standard IACUC Application for Approval form.
- For minor modifications: Submit a letter (preferably on an official letterhead) explaining the modifications in detail and to what section of the protocol they apply to. Also, please state in your letter that nothing else has changed with your protocol with the exception of these minor modifications.
- For major modifications: Please resubmit your original approved IACUC protocol with the changes integrated into the appropriate protocol sections. It is required that the changes be discernable from the original protocol text (bold face, different font or size).

Food Animal Feeding or Production Activities Blanket Protocol Modification Request
The IACUC must review and approve animal care and use activities prior to initiation of the activity. Food animal feeding or production trials frequently involve large numbers of animals using standardized procedures with changes only in ingredients or additives. It is difficult to predict all of the potential variations of a feeding trial that may be performed. Consequently, in order to facilitate the submittal and review of food animal feeding trials involving large numbers of animals, investigators can: Submit a request for a blanket protocol that describes the overall activity in broad terms.
