CVM Informed Owner Consent Form for Teaching Laboratories

CVM Informed Owner Consent Form for Research


The charge of the committee is to provide needed institutional oversight of clinical research involving client-owned animals. The goal of the Clinical Research Review Committee (CRRC) is to protect animals, animal owners, investigators, and Texas A&M University by assuring the ethical and humane treatment of all participants in clinical research.


Members are appointed by department heads. Committee members are comprised of one to two representatives from each CVM Department, the Campus Veterinarian (or his/her designate), a member from an outside college, and a community representative. Ex-officio members include the Assistant Dean of Hospital Operations and the Associate Dean for Research & Graduate Studies. Other ex-officio members may be added at the discretion of the Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Studies. The Chair is elected by the Committee. A membership term is three years and may be renewed. Expiration of terms will be staggered to assure continuity within the committee.
