Animal Welfare Act and Alternatives to Painful Procedures

Compliance at NYMC

NYMC Office of Research Administration participates in the activities of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee to ensure institutional compliance with regulations regarding the care and use of laboratory animals.

NYMC Policy & Procedure for Vertebrate Animals

Approval by the Animal Care and Use Committee is required before animals may be used in research or teaching; federal and other agencies require certification of this approval in applications. The College form reflects federal requirements, for example, information regarding an investigator's search for an alternative to the use of live vertebrate animals. Questions may be directed to Salomon Amar, Director, Office of Research Administration: (914) 594-2600.
