The transfer of animals from one protocol to another may be permitted in some cases, but it requires prior Approval. Please note that this is required even if both protocols are under the same Investigator.

Boston or Medford

The Animal Protocol Transfer Form must be completed and sent to IACUC-office@tufts.edu prior to the transfer. Both Principal Investigators must be included on the submission email. Under ‘justification for transfer,’ provide detail for how the animals will be used on the receiving protocol. The transfer is not considered Approved until the IACUC office has notified the Principal Investigators. In addition, new cage cards must be placed and relevant health records must be modified to reflect the change(s).

If the animals need to be moved to a different animal holding room, the Animal Relocation Request Form must also be submitted to DLAM.
