The Animal Ethics Committee (CEUA) aims at complying and ensuring compliance with the legislation applicable to the creation and/or use of animals for teaching and research at UFSC. Carrying out educational, consulting, advisory and control activities, CEUA does not aim at inhibiting the use of animals, but rather at promoting the rational use of this resource by the university.
