The Office of Research Integrity and Compliance and the WVU Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee would like to announce the appointment of a new Chairperson, Dr. Matt Wilson. Dr. Wilson is a Professor in the Davis College Division of Animal and Nutritional Sciences and has been with the University for 16 years. Eight of those years he served on the WVU IACUC during which he served as Vice Chair for the last three.
Dr. Wilson is looking forward to promoting a positive working relationship between the IACUC and all animal users. Town hall meetings will be scheduled in the near future so Principal Investigators can get to know him and so he can get to know more of the animal users at WVU.
ORIC and the IACUC would also like to thank Dr. Al Berrebi for his 6 years of service on the IACUC, 3 of which he served as Chair. We all wish him the best of luck in his new role in the HSC Dean's Office.
