Center for Immuno-Oncology


The Animal Protocols Facility is responsible for the assessment and oversight of the Center for Immuno-Oncology (CIO) Animal Care & Use Program components, compliance required by the NCI-ACUC guidelines, AALAC accreditation and facilities, including the review and approval of animal research protocols, evaluation of animal use and housing areas, monitoring and evaluation of animal use practices, review and approval of policies and standards for animal care and use, and investigation of animal welfare concerns. Additionally, the group is responsible for the management of several mouse colonies, which include transgenic mice and mice harboring genetic mutations, that results in the development of spontaneous tumors to be made available to many investigators within the CIO for preclinical studies.
