Spotlight on Research

Animal models play a crucial role in understanding the development of disease and in searching for effective treatments.

More about our research

We are committed to using research animals in an ethical and compassionate manner.

The Office of Animal Care Management (OACM) is directed by the University Veterinarian, who provides oversight and clinical care for animals utilized in University teaching and research activities. The Veterinarian serves on UVM's Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and participates in the review and monitoring of all proposed or ongoing animal use.
