The Laboratory Animal Resource Center (LARC) contributes to and enhances the services and collaborative efforts of medical research at IU School of Medicine. In addition to the provision of basic husbandry for a wide variety of laboratory animal species, the veterinary staff and other highly experienced laboratory animal professionals of the IU School of Medicine LARC provide training, supplies, and specialized service support for medical research.
At the Laboratory Animal Resource Center (LARC), we are dedicated to providing exceptional animal care which exceeds the needs of Indiana University School of Medicine and its research staff.
Our vision is top-quality animal care and PI service provided by inspired and valued employees. The field of laboratory animal science has evolved substantially over the past two decades. We understand how the laboratory environment can both positively and negatively affect the results of research projects, and we recognize that an educated and empowered animal care team can be effective in working as an unofficial but critical member of the research team utilizing animal models. The LARC staff has deep experience in laboratory animal care and has achieved various levels of certification in laboratory animal science.
