Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee

Announcement: 

The Institutional Animal Care and Use programs at University Park and the College of Medicine have been working with the Office of Research Information Systems to bring a new IACUC submission program, CATS (Centralized Application Tracking System) IACUC, to Penn State. CATS IACUC will eventually replace PRAMS and paper submissions.

CATS IACUC:

  • User-friendly online application system
  • Allows for re-use of information on research teams and procedures 
  • Transparent workflow
  • Improves documentation and communication
  • Simplifies triennial review process 

More information about the launch will be coming in spring 2017.
