At organizations that perform animal research, the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) is responsible for reviewing research protocols and evaluating the institution’s animal care policies, programs and practices. An important member of each IACUC is the non-affiliated member, who represents the community’s interest in good animal care. The non-affiliate may not be connected financially or through a family member with the organization on whose IACUC he or she serves. This member is sometimes called the community member.
