  3. Will living animals be exposed to any drugs, infectious agents, radioactive materials, anesthetic agents, or recombinant DNA?
  4. Is the project funded by a federal grant?

If you answer "NO" to all the above questions, then you may use the IACUC Short Form. Please note that the SFA IACUC could determine your research does not qualify for use of the Short Form. If that is the case, you will receive an email indicating so.
