Small pink zebrafish swim in petri dishProviding veterinary care to all animals used at the University of Michigan, the Unit for Laboratory Animal Medicine (ULAM) offers the entire U-M community economical, efficient, and specialized services that promote scientific advancements while upholding the highest animal welfare standards.

ULAM's shared services, equipment, resources, and expertise are provided on a fee-for-service basis (usually in the form of a recharge rate).

Fees are billed monthly to departmental and/or investigator accounts, and are often associated with the purchase of animals and supplies, daily care of animals, technical assistance, and specialized research support services.

Per-diem rates for animal care, or direct charges for personnel costs and supplies, are based on the cost analysis and recovery procedures outlined in the National Institutes of Health (NIH)’s Cost Analysis and Rate Setting Manual for Animal Research Facilities.

The University’s Financial Analysis Office reviews and approves rates on an annual basis.

Rates for animal husbandry care include items such as purchase of animals and supplies, daily care of animals, and technical assistance. Per-diem rates for animal care, or direct charges for personnel costs and supplies, are based on the cost analysis and recovery procedures outlined in the NIH’s Cost Analysis and Rate Setting Manual for Animal Research Facilities.
