Request to Import Rodents to Boston University
This form is to be used to import rodents from a collaborative institution to Boston University Medical Campus (BUMC) or the undergraduate Charles River Campus (CRC). All animals will be quarantined at the BUMC quarantine facility and transferred to an established animal colony facility upon clearance from quarantine. In order to receive animals, the LASC/LACF requires appropriate health reports of one year’s duration representing the housing site at the original institution. A letter from the institutional veterinarian detailing the animal care program must accompany the health reports. Please fill out all appropriate areas throughout this document. Incomplete forms will be administratively returned. If you have any questions, contact the LASC office on the Medical Campus at 617-638-4086.
