Animal Research

Northern Illinois University is committed to conducting quality animal research in an ethical and responsible manner to further science and improve the health of society. Veterinary and compliance oversight is administered through the Office of Research Compliance, Integrity and Safety, while animal care and animal resources are provided by the Department of Biological Sciences and Department of Psychology in order to meet the animal research needs of the research community.

Online submission is now available. Be sure to complete your application by selecting "click here" [not the more obvious username and password fields] using the new InfoEd submission portal. You will use your NIU username and password if you're not already logged in through single sign-on. Non-NIU affiliates will need to contact erahelp@niu.edu in order to establish a profile.
