Veterinary Resources
The animal research program at the University of Miami encompasses four of the five UM campuses (Medical, Coral Gables, South Campus, and Marine & Atmospheric Science). The Division of Veterinary Resources (DVR) is the unit responsible for oversight and implementation of the animal care and use program. The mission of the DVR is to advance knowledge and improve the health and well being of humans and animals through excellent service and support, research and teaching.
All activities are in compliance with federal, state and institutional regulations. The University was granted full accreditation by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care, International (AAALAC) in February 2005 and received its current reaccreditation in July 2007. In addition, the University is licensed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) and has filed a Letter of Assurance with the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), which describes our animal care and use program.
