Animal Care and Use (ACU) Catalog

CITI Program’s ACU series has been designed to meet the needs of faculty, post-docs, graduate students, technicians, and any other persons involved in the conduct of research that uses non-human, vertebrate animals.

The ACU series consists of six basic courses, Working with the IACUC, Essentials for IACUC Members, IACUC Community Member, Post-Procedure Care of Mice and Rats in Research: Minimizing Pain and Distress, Wildlife Research, and Post-Approval Monitoring (PAM), as well as two refresher options, Working with the IACUC – Refresher course and IACUC Member Refresher Case Studies.

A set of animal-specific courses provides information pertinent to specific animals including: Amphibians, Cats, Dogs, Ferrets, Fish, Gerbils, Guinea Pigs, Hamsters, Horses, Mice, Non-Human Primates, Rabbits, Rats, Reptiles, Swine, and Zebrafish. These courses should be taken as supplements to a basic course.

An additional standalone course entitled, Institutional Official: Animal Care and Use, provides an introduction to the role and responsibilities of an institutional official (IO) responsible for academic and commercial animal care and use programs.

This catalog provides a listing and description of each module within the ACU series, as well as their recommended use and language availability.
