The Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) at Ball State University reviews all projects using animals in research to ensure research is conducted in accordance with Ball State University policy and with applicable provisions of federal, state, and local laws and regulations.

COVID-19 Guidance for our Research Community 

For more information and guidance during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, please click here. Most recent updates within the documents are in green. Please note that this guidance is for the entire Ball State research community, not just researchers using human subjects. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our office.

Attention Animal Researchers: Updated PDF versions of the IACUC project documents are now available on IRBnet. Research projects intended for IACUC review should use these documents as part of their project submission. The new forms are incompatible with Google Chrome, and should be opened using Firefox or Internet Explorer. Additionally, Mac Users should use Adobe Acrobat Reader DC, rather than Form Finder, to open the application.

As of September 1, 2010, all researchers (current and newly submitting) must complete CITI training prior to submitting a protocol with IRBNet.

Review the steps to prepare and submit proposals to the IACUC.

Check the deadlines for submitting research proposals.

Several useful links to IACUC-related documents are posted on the IACUC Resource page.

Many of the documents on our Web site require Adobe Reader Acrobat DC: Download it free here
