SAGE Labs supports the use of the most appropriate animal models for scientific research. The knowledge gained from this research is used to develop life-saving treatments for diseases and conditions affecting the health of the world community.
The SAGE Labs team is committed to the highest standards for humane, responsible animal care, in full compliance with all Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare policies. Where appropriate, we actively implement the practice of “The 3 Rs” — Reduction, Refinement and Replacement — in the laboratory setting.
SAGE Labs is independently monitored by an Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), which evaluates all proposed research and protocols. Comprised of scientists, nonscientists, community members, and veterinarians from the local community, the SAGE Labs IACUC closely oversees research and ensures that it is conducted in accordance with all provisions of the PHS Policy on Humane Care and Use of Laboratory Animals.
