GEU operates a diverse and decentralized animal care and use program. The animal facilities are located across campus with two outlying facilities being ten miles apart. The animal care and use program is well staffed. Personnel from the animal resource program and the research administrative office have specifically defined responsibilities. In addition, staff members from Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), Occupational Medicine (OM), Public Relations (PR), and the Office of the Vice President for Research have an active role in the animal care and use program.
