The Division of Laboratory Animal Resources (DLAR)  at Stony Brook University is fully committed to the judicious, humane use of animals in research and teaching. The Division supports all SBU animal related research through the provision of laboratory animal management and veterinary medical care and assures institutional compliance with all federal, state and local regulations and policies. DLAR is responsible for animal procurement; animal husbandry; veterinary care including health surveillance, preventative medicine programs, animal quarantine, personnel training and special technical support; and maintenance of animal facilities and equipment.

DLAR, with 26 administrative, veterinary and technical personnel, provides quality animal care for over 15 species of laboratory animals located in five facilities on campus. The School of Medicine, and the Departments of Anatomical Sciences, Biochemistry and Cell Biology, Ecology and Evolution, Neurobiology and Behavior, Marine Biology, Molecular Genetics and Microbiology, Physiology and Biophysics, Pharmacological Sciences, and Psychology, receive approximately $36 million of funding for essential animals research annually.
