What is ICARE
The Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project is an initiative of NIH OLAW, USDA APHIS, FDA, BARDA, NSF, and VA that aims to help institutions reduce administrative burden, increase IACUC function, and increase compliance with federal regulations related to animal use in research.
About IA Intro
Join us at our upcoming workshop ICARE Academy: Introduction to IACUC Function (IA Intro) March 2-3, 2020 in Durham, NC. IA Intro is ideal for personnel who are new to the program, newly promoted, or who seek a review of the federal animal welfare oversight standards.
Expanding beyond typical lectures, ICARE uses active learning and scientific teaching by facilitating discussions, solving scenarios, and helping attendees brainstorm solutions to take back to their institutions. Each workshop is capped at 36 people, ensuring an ideal group size that fosters cooperative learning, interaction, and discussion. You will be trained by, and interact directly with, federal, academic, and private sector faculty who are subject matter experts.
IA Intro is a comprehensive 2-day workshop that introduces participants to the regulations and guidelines of the U.S. federal agencies that oversee animal welfare at research institutions. A wide range of topics will be covered, from what to report, to veterinary verification and consultation (VVC), to site visits and inspections! Click here to see the full agenda (subject to change).
