The Animal Health Research Center (AHRC) is a state-of-the-art facility that enables scientists to study infectious microorganisms, parasites, and toxins in an environment that is safe for researchers, animals, and the public.
One of the most technologically advanced biocontainment facilities in the United States, the AHRC is dedicated to studying a wide variety of infectious diseases affecting both animal and human health.
The AHRC, a 75,000 square-foot facility, is comprised of BSL-2 labs, ABSL-2 spaces, BSL-3 labs, ABSL-3/BSL-3Ag vivarium. Each lab is available for reservation by UGA and outside researchers.
You may conduct your project within one of the AHRC’s state-of-the-art laboratories or partner with one of our researchers who will oversee the completion of your study.
All animals involved in your project will receive expert care provided by the AHRC Bioresources program, which is a part of the University of Georgia’s fully accredited program as designated by the Association of Assessment and Accreditation of Laboratory Animal Care (AAALAC).
