Appendix G. Instructions for Vertebrate Animal Science Review Reviewers (VASR)

G.1 These instructions are to assist Scientific Merit Review Panel (SMRP) members in the VASR review of the proposal.

Subsequent to evaluation of the VASR worksheet by a SMRP, all proposals are coded as either No Vertebrate Animals, No Concerns/Acceptable, or Concerns/Unacceptable.

G.2 Coding as NO VERTEBRATE ANIMALS - If vertebrate tissue used in the study is obtained from other sources (e.g., tissue repository, animals euthanized for an unrelated purpose), the proposal is coded as no vertebrate animals used. The source of the tissue should be included in the VASR to validate the coding as no vertebrate animals used. If vertebrate tissues are obtained through euthanasia for tissue harvest, the proposed research is coded as use of live vertebrate animals. The generation of custom antibodies must be coded as use of live vertebrate animals.

G.3 Coding as NO CONCERNS/ACCEPTABLE or CONCERNS/UNACCEPTABLE - Coding is based on the review of the five required points for each of the performance sites.

Performance site(s): This is defined as the institutions where procedures with animals will be performed. If the applicant institution is not the site where animal work will be performed, the performance site must be identified. If there is more than one performance site, the description of animal care and use at each site must be included and must address the five points.
