Otterbein University recognizes the need for investigations in which human beings may serve as research subjects. The University also acknowledges its responsibility for ensuring that the privacy, safety, health, and welfare of such subjects are adequately protected. Consequently, Otterbein has established the Institutional Review Board committee to review and approve the adequacy of human subject protection.
All use of vertebrate animals (fish, amphibians, birds, reptiles, and mammals) in research and teaching must be approved by the Otterbein University Animal Care and Use Committee (OUACUC).
