The GEU IACUC established a process to oversee the organization’s decentralized animal housing facilities. The facilities include four laboratory animal vivaria that are located on the main campus and three agriculture animal research stations fifty miles north of campus. In addition, GEU scientists maintained three animal housing facilities throughout the continental United States. An ichthyologist established facilities for housing research salmon in Alaska. A wildlife biologist maintained a herd of mule deer in Colorado, and an immunologist housed laboratory rats for Public Health Service (PHS)-supported research in San Diego, California.
