Rutgers shares, with the public at large, a concern for the ethical use of animals in research and is firmly committed to discovery that will lead to the treatment and cure of disease and physical injury. Only once it is determined that alternative methods such as cell culture and computer models cannot effectively be used, a conscious decision is made to use laboratory animals in research as it is that both animals and humans are the ultimate beneficiaries. Laboratory Animal Services works closely with the Rutgers Institutional Animal Care and Use Committees (IACUC) to provide the highest quality animal care and veterinary oversight of our research animals in support of this commitment to humane animal research.
