Schedule H: Use of Transgenic Animals or Plants
Forms are due to Environment Health and Safety (CB #1650) by the 15th of the month.
The Schedule H is required to be filled out when you are acquiring transgenic mice from other researchers (including UNC) or outside companies such as Jackson labs. If your IACUC protocol lists transgenic mice you will be required to provide the IACUC with an approved Schedule H. The Institutional Biosafety Committee must approve the Schedule H and send it to the IACUC.
The top portion of the document is for administrative information including Principal Investigator name, PID number CB# etc.
A project title is required. Under #1 list where the animal was produced.
It is important to fill out the entire form.
Under containment level most Schedule H applications fall under BSL1 containment. If your animal is expressing human genes or is being transfected by replication competent vectors such as Adenovirus, Retroviruses or wild type Cowpox, then your animals would be classified as BSL2.
