Our Facility  

Our facility is located in the Animal Resource Center (ARC) within the Lee Medical Building on the USD campus in Vermillion.

Subjects can be housed in state-of-the-art holding facilities (contact ARC Director Kevin O'Kelley and/or ARC Manager Megan Carlson for further details). Behavioral testing rooms are adjacent to holding rooms, minimizing transport stress. They are also fully enclosed to prevent disturbance and distraction from outside sources. Rooms are equipped with overhead digital cameras that feed images to automated tracking software and have adjustable lighting to permit testing under normal or reverse light cycle conditions.
