August 2018: No non-compliant items

As required by their enforcement of the Animal Welfare Act (AWA), veterinary medical officers from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) regularly conduct routine, unannounced inspections of facilities that house animals for research. For three days in August 2018, USDA inspectors conducted a routine review of animals, facilities and associated records at the University of Wisconsin–Madison’s School of Medicine and Public Health, School of Veterinary Medicine and the Wisconsin National Primate Research Center — each host to a broad range of research and training projects that involve animals covered by the AWA. The programs include many laboratories and animal housing facilities, as well as many scientists, animal care, veterinary and research staff.

USDA inspectors found the schools and research center to be in compliance with the AWA.
