The Division of Laboratory Animal Resources (DLAR) is responsible for administering the university's laboratory animal care and use program. Oversight of the program is the joint responsibility of the DLAR and the Institutional Animal and Care Use Committee (IACUC). The DLAR directly operates and maintains animal facilities at the university and John Dingell Veteran's Administration Center. Under contractual agreement, the DLAR also provides veterinary care service to Detroit VA Medical Center which has a major affiliation with the WSU School of Medicine. Animals, cages, supplies and/or equipment are purchased by the DLAR for the facilities it operates.
