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.
Animal Protocol Transfer forms must be completed prior to the transfer. All forms must include details for how the animals will be used on the receiving protocol. The transfer is not considered Approved until the IACUC office or LAMS has notified the Principal Investigators.
It is the responsibility of the Principal Investigator to contact DLAM or the CBU manager, Don Smith, to initiate changes to the cage cards to reflect the new protocol number, Principal Investigator name, and/or account number.
