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. All animal purchases are placed through the DLAR for quality assurance reasons and to ensure that all animals are used only in approved IACUC protocols.

- Water@Wayne Seminar: "Are Contaminated Sediments an Important Ecosystem Stressor?"
- January 9 2014 at 2:30 PMWelcome CenterThe Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to host the next Water@Wayne Seminar on Thursday, January 9, 2014 at 2:30 p.m. at the Wayne State University Welcome Center Auditorium, 42 W. Warren, Detroit, MI. The guest presenter will be Dr. Allen Burton, Professor in the School of Natural Resources & Environment and in the Department of Earth & Environmental Sciences, and Director of both the Water Center and the Cooperative Institute of Limnology and Ecosystems Research at the University of Michigan. His presentation is titled: "Are Contaminated Sediments an Important Ecosystem Stressor". Contaminated sediments are frequently implicted as a major stressor requiring remediation based on exceedances of sediment quality guidelines. These situations often are in human dominated waterways with other coexisting stressors. Decisions on risk and remediation rarely consider all co-existing stressors and realistic linkages between exposure and effects. Examples of various in situ-based approaches will be presented, including; passive samplers, caged organisms, colonization and transplanted organisms where exposure compartments include overlying waters, storm waters, upwellings, sediment-water interfaces, biofilms, surficial sediments and pore waters. A small reception will follow in the Welcome Center Lobby.
