The Lab Animal Care Technicians are the foundation of our program. Their diligent focus on the care of all our animals provides the platform to answer the scientific questions we are asked. These team members for both the small and large animal programs perform animal husbandry duties (e.g. feeding, watering, cage side observations/clinical observations, cage changes and sanitation) according to SOP; handle and restrain animals; performs sanitation and disease control protocols in each vivarium which may include the shower-in vivarium, ventilated rack housing rooms, non-USDA or USDA conventional housing rooms, operate sanitation equipment (e.g. autoclave, cage washer, rack washer, etc.), and sanitize animal rooms/non-animal rooms and responsible for waste disposal.
