Historical Note

Beginning in 1969 as a university wide unit of the Institute of Biology and Medicine through the College of Veterinary Medicine, the Center for Laboratory Animal Resources (CLAR) provided research, education, and service in laboratory animal medicine, nutrition, behavior, and husbandry.

In 1976, animal resources moved to the Laboratory Animal Care Service (LACS). LACS provided supportive services for instructional and research programs involving laboratory animals as well as coordinated the purchase and delivery of laboratory animals and their supplies.

Circa 1993, LACS became the University Laboratory Animal Resources (ULAR), a campus-wide organization reporting to the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies and provides support for research and instructional programs. It is responsible for the care of a wide variety of animals - from fish to frogs and goats to guinea pigs.

As of 2015, ULAR had been absorbed into the larger Campus Animal Resources, which provides husbandry, veterinary care, procurement, and other administrative support for research and teaching in animal housing facilities.
