Animal Research and Teaching Applications

All animal ethics submissions and reviews for conducting research or teaching projects which involve the use  of animals, including new applications, amendments and annual reports will now  be completed via an online solution.

Log into the Animal Ethics Management System, using your MQ OneID (MQ2013XXXX, 4XXXXXXX or MQXXXXXXXX) and MQ OneID password to create and submit your Animal Ethics Online Application Form. Google Chrome is the preferred web browser to access the system. Do not use Internet Explorer as the system will not function fully in this browser.

AEC pre-approved Standard Operating Procedures (SOP's) for various procedures are available for use on your animal facility Wiki. If you select to use any SOP's in your project please refer to them in your application and upload for review. To access the relevant Wiki please contact your facility manager.

The use of animals for research and teaching is managed by an online database called RAMS (Research Animal Management System). RAMS offer various resources including built-in monitoring sheets (templates) and colony management tools. Experimenting with the test environment of RAMS allows you to become familiar with the database without risking entering false data to the system. To get access to the test environment of RAMS, please contact your facility manager.

Should you require further information, additional resources or assistance, please contact the Animal Welfare Officer or Animal Ethics Secretariat at animal.ethics@mq.edu.au.
