The ABI Program facilitates the activities of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), the Institutional Biosafety Committee (IBC), and the University Isotope Committee (UIC) at all campus locations except the College of Medicine.
These programs serve Penn State faculty, staff, and students by facilitating research committee reviews and approvals of regulated experiments and teaching activities conducted at or under the auspices of Penn State that involve vertebrate animals, regulated biohazardous materials, and/or radioactive materials. Program staff members serve Penn State faculty, staff, and students by helping them to ensure their research and teaching programs comply with all applicable federal, state, and local regulations and policies, as well as Penn State University policies. Program staff are available to answer individual inquiries, to meet with researchers and instructors, and to present educational workshops and trainings.
