Animal Health and Welfare Core (AHWC)

The AHWC will facilitate the importation and maintenance of genetically modified mice that will be studied in the renal phenotyping and pathophysiology cores. It will also ensure compliance with Vanderbilt’s Division of Animal Care and national policies for animal care and well being. The AHWC is also responsible for maintaining the quarantine, pathogen testing, veterinary care and general housing of mice submitted to the phenotyping and pathophysiology cores. The primary mission of the Division of Animal Care (DAC) at Vanderbilt University is to provide husbandry and veterinary services for animals used in research programs, and to interact in ways that comply with PHS policy and all other regulatory standards. Vanderbilt University is fully accredited by the Association for Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care International (AAALAC). Specific procedures and disease testing requirements have to be fulfilled before mice can be shipped to Vanderbilt from an outside facility, as outlined in shipping and health screening pages.
