The University Committee on Animal Resources
The University Committee on Animal Resources (UCAR) is accepting web-based submission of animal care and use forms (animal protocols) using TopazEnterprise. All new submissions, as well as 36-month reviews, must be submitted via the web-based system. Paper copies will not be accepted after January 1, 2010.
In order to submit a protocol, Principle Investigators must attend a TOPAZ training session. If a PI wants a lab manager or administrative staff member to have privileges to create and edit, or modify an on-line protocol they must also attend a training session. A list of training sessions for November and December is attached.
All new faculty members who are transferring grants in which animals are used must also submit their protocols on-line. Each faculty member must have a domain name in order to do this. Domain name requests are submitted on-line to ISD by individual Department Administrators. Arrangements can be made for training prior to moving to the University by contacting Jean Defendorf.
Please contact Jean Defendorf in the UCAR and with any questions.
