The Division of Laboratory Animal Medicine (DLAM) is
housed within the School of Veterinary Medicine, and
serves as a central administrative division for the
operation of two research animal holding facilities.
These include the SVM Laboratory Animal Medicine
Facility, and the Life Sciences Animal Care Facility.
DLAM purchases, maintains, and cares for all teaching
and research animals housed within these two
facilities. The animal care facilities, equipment, and
program are accredited by the Association for Assessment
and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC)
Our objective is to maintain a fully accredited animal
care program supporting teaching, research, and service.
