MSU's Animal Care Program
MSU's Animal Care Program (ACP) is comprised of two key divisions:
Together, these two groups provide regulatory and administrative oversight for any animals used in biomedical, agricultural and veterinary teaching and research endeavors. There are more than 100 personnel employed to provide husbandry, veterinary and administrative care to these animals.
Animal-related activities are an integral part of Michigan State University’s teaching, research and outreach missions and help MSU advance the quality of life for people and animals.
Annually, the MSU community cares for over 50,000 animals from a wide variety of species involved in cutting edge investigations on imaging technologies, cardiovascular and cancer studies, food production and performance, growth and development, social behaviors, and infectious disease.
