Animal Core Facility


The Animal Care Facility (ACF) is one of the essential units of support and service to the biomedical research at Jackson State University. Its long term goal is to develop a state-of-the-art infrastructure as well as to provide technical and logistic support to RCMI investigators and other JSU faculty and students to conduct a high quality of animal research, in compliance with the guidelines and policies set for by accrediting and regulatory agencies, especially as they relate to IACUC protocol development, animal husbandry, food and water supply, veterinary care, quarantine and euthanasia, sanitation procedures, environmental monitoring, and record keeping. ACF provides accommodation for long-term storage of animals and maintains them in accordance with and in compliance with the PHS Policy on the Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals and the Animal Welfare Act, as described in the 2002 Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
