The Office of Research Support (ORS) does not administer or oversee HOP policy 5-2011* or training related to the policy. ORS administers HOP policy 7-1210, “Promoting Objectivity in Research by Managing, Reducing or Eliminating Financial Conflicts of Interest” so if you conduct research and have:

  1. Not submitted a Financial Interest Disclosure (FID), you will need to complete mandatory training and file a FID. Instructions for completing these requirements are located at
  2. Previously submitted a FID, you are not required to complete additional training nor re-disclose the same information to comply with the UTS 180/HOP 5-2011 policy requirements.   However, you may have other responsibilities under that policy.

*If you have questions concerning the other policy, HOP policy 5-2011, “Conflicts of Interest, Conflicts of Commitment, & Outside Activities,” you should contact the Provost’s Office

IACUC Meeting Dates and Deadlines

shell detail

The goal of the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC) and the Office of Research Support (ORS) is to rapidly process protocols in an effort to provide faculty with the maximum amount of time possible to address Committee concerns and clarifications. In order to maintain an expeditious review process, proposed protocol modifications and annual renewal forms are no longer reviewed at Full Committee Reviews UNLESS one or more IACUC member(s) specifically requests to do so.

Any new or third-year resubmission must be reviewed at a convened meeting of the IACUC. All meetings usually begin at 12:00 PM and are held in FAC 328, unless otherwise noted.

Meetings are open to the public except for any posted executive session held in compliance with the Texas Open Meetings Act. Persons interested in a meeting and desiring communication or other special accommodations should contact the Office of Research Support at least five working days prior to the meeting.

If your protocol is returned for any reason, you must resubmit the revised protocol by the deadline date to be considered at that month’s FCR.

If you wish for the Committee to discuss a specific item, you must request so via email ( by the meeting deadline date. Your request must include an itemized list and brief description of any agenda item you would like for the Committee to discuss. You must also attend the meeting in which your discussion item is discussed by the Committee.
