The following forms will help with your IACUC application and research process. You may not use all of these during your protocol, but all forms that may be required are available here.
Request to Use Animals — Complete this form to be sure regulatory requirements are met when live vertebrate animals are to be used in a project at Kent State University. IACUC must review all research, teaching, and testing activities involving the vertebrate animals.
Participant Qualifications — If you are seeking approval for a protocol that will have more than four persons working on the project, you must complete this form, attach it to the protocol request, and submit it to the IACUC coordinator before IACUC approval of the protocol can be granted. All study personnel must provide documentation of IACUC training and enrollment in the occupational health program.
Addition of Personnel — Complete this form for each person that you want to add to an approved protocol that involves the use of animals. All new study personnel must provide documentation of IACUC training and enrollment in the occupational health program.
Change Forms - You must complete one of these forms if you want to propose procedural changes or additions that involve living animals to an approved "Request to Use Animals" protocol.
Modification of Existing Protocol — You must complete this form if you want to propose a significant procedural change(s) or addition(s) that involve living animals to approved "Request to Use Animals."
Minor Change Form - You must complete this online form if you want to propose non-significant procedural change(s) or addition(s) that involve living animals to an approved "Request to Use Animals." Please review the Minor Change Policy.
Annual Review/Completion/Termination — You must complete this form annually if you are seeking renewal or completion/termination of a "Request to Use Animals" protocol. If your project continues longer than three years, you must complete a new "Request to Use Animals" form and submit it to IACUC before the three-year anniversary of the original approval. Requests must be submitted to IACUC at least 30 days prior to protocol expiration date.
Request for Animal Use Involving Hazardous Materials — Complete this form if you intend to administer potentially hazardous materials (carcinogen, infectious agents, RNA, human tissue/cells, toxins, radioactive isotopes, or other hazardous materials) to living vertebrate OR produce genetically engineered vertebrates.
Training Log — This form can be used to document personnel training.
Animal Tissue Transfer/Usage — This form is to ensure that tissue is acquired through acceptable means and appropriate safeguards are observed.
