Other Centres and Institutes

In addition to the three Animal Service Units on campus, there are several research centres or laboratories which provide specialized animal services or animal user training. In all cases, veterinarian oversight for animal use in these units is provided by one of the three animal services facilities. Researchers may be able to access fee-based services from these units and should contact them directly.
