MAHER has an established “animal research facility” at MMCHRI for conduction of preclinical studies and services. The animal house is the backbone of clinical research activities and is of pivotal importance in a medical institution. The Animal House of MAHER maintains and provides various species and strains of quality animals which are supplied to the researchers of the Institute upon request. It is well-equipped with a separate storage area for experimental animals, washing and procedural area. The Animal House is maintained by the Institutional Animal Ethical Committee registered with the Committee for The Purpose of Control and Supervision on Experiments on Animals (CPCSEA), a statutory body under the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act, 1960. The Committee supervises the usage, assessment, and permissions related to experimental animal studies as per the guidelines of the statutory bodies.
