Research Services

 

The mission of the Research Services is to provide centralized high quality, cost-effective research services to both academic and industry clients.  Rutgers has a wealth of experience, capabilities and models that are routinely used to answer critical in vivo research questions. We provide a comprehensive program of animal care including consultation, experimental design, protocol preparation, a duly constituted animal care and use committee, occupational health and laboratory safety, BSL3 in vivo biohazard research, and full-time veterinary care.  Rutgers offers competitive fee-for-service pricing, confidentiality, accuracy, and rapid service. Our team is dedicated to humane animal research.

Animal facilities and Animal Care & Use program

Rutgers possesses state of the art barrier animal facilities with the highest standards of animal husbandry and pathogen exclusion.  Animal research projects are supported by an institutional animal care and use committee (IACUC).  Rutgers animal facilities are USDA-registered and accredited by the Association for the Assessment and Accreditation of Animal Care International (AAALACi).  Rutgers has an Animal Welfare Assurance with the US Public Health Service (PHS), a requirement for conducting any PHS/NIH-funded animal work.​
