SMART IACUC includes:

  • An IACUC +/- Hospital Review Board reliance agreement that permits eligible institutions that join it (“Participating Institutions”) to cede review of veterinary clinical research to other Participating Institutions’ IACUC and/or Hospital Review Boards 

  • A set of standard operating procedures (SOPs) to guide implementation of the reliance relationship among Participating Institutions.  

  • A centralized online system to support sign-on, reliance determinations, and harmonization of study review and approvals 

The SMART IACUC network is now live for institutions to join!
