The use of vertebrate animals in research and educational programs within academic institutions must be conducted in accordance with the federal laws described in the Animal Welfare Act, the Public Health Service Policy on the Humane Care and Use of Animals, and all other applicable federal, state, and local laws, regulations, policies, and guidelines. In compliance with these laws, the Vice Chancellor for Research of the University appoints an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) whose responsibility is to assure that the use of animals in education and research programs is in accordance with all federal, state, and local laws, regulations, and policies. IACUCs are federally mandated review committees (equivalent to the Institutional Review Boards for human subjects), operating under regulations from the Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (OLAW) and the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The Office of Animal Care and Use (OACU) is responsible for ethical and regulatory oversight of laboratory animal research at UNC Chapel Hill, ensuring compliance with all mandates and providing support, guidance, and oversight to the IACUC. OACU personnel work conjointly with the IACUC and other campus departments to administer all vertebrate animal care protocols submitted by faculty for research and/or educational programs; ensure congruency between grant applications and animal care applications; inspect, evaluate, and approve all facilities for housing animals on the UNC-CH campus and satellite locations; assist with USDA inspections and AAALAC International site visits; identify program deficiencies and confirm return to full compliance; train investigators and lab personnel in, and monitor compliance with, the procedures and policies of humane animal care and use; investigate reports of welfare concerns; evaluate the institutional animal care program biannually and submit various reports to federal and state agencies.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill currently receives over $260 million in funding for research involving animals from federal sources and foundations. All components of this program, coordinated through the OACU, work together to ensure the highest standard of ethical principles are applied to the humane treatment of these respected and valued animals.

The Training & Compliance Coordinator will perform post-approval monitoring by inspecting Principal Investigator (PI) laboratories, satellite facilities and Division of Comparative Medicine (DCM) facilities in an educational, facilitative, timely, accurate, and consistent manner.
The position serves as an essential member on the Office of Animal Care and Use (OACU) training team by offering state-of-the-art training in research techniques.
