Veterinary Services Team

Our Mission

Our mission is to champion the welfare of animals that contribute to the research undertaken at the ANU and support research excellence in the fields of biomedical and wildlife research, in line with the Australian Code for the Care and Use of Animals for Scientific Purposes.

We aim to achieve this by proactively engaging with the ANU research community, supporting the University in its vision for high-quality research activities. We provide training, advice and support for research programs and issues relating to animal welfare. We assist researchers with their efforts towards innovative research endeavours, striving for reproducibility, responsible research practices and with a drive for continual improvement.


For complaints regarding Veterinary Services or the Ethics process, please contact the Director of the Research Services Division.
