Access will be granted only to people who:


To request access (allow at least one business day,) the principal investigator (PI) associated with the animal use protocol must submit an email request to DAR administration at daradministrators@illinois.edu. The PI must be copied on the email if it is submitted by a delegate.

The following information is required:

  • Name of the person who needs access
  • The University Identification Number (UIN) on their I-Card

For access to the Carl R. Woese Institute of Genomic Biology (IGB):
