Mission Statement

Foremost, we are committed to providing healthy, well-cared-for animals, which are essential to meaningful research, and maintaining the animal facility for their daily care.

Veterinary Responsibilities

The veterinarians are directly responsible for the care and use of animals at all Brown University facilities and provide veterinary services to the area hospitals affiliated with The Warren Alpert  Medical School. They directly support researchers and students,  and as veterinary members of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), they review all animal care and use protocols.
