Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE)
Owner/Developer: Public Responsibility in Medicine & Research (PRM&R)
|Country:||United States of America|
Initiated in 2013, the multiphase Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project includes the National Institutes of Health Office of Laboratory Animal Welfare (NIH OLAW), the United States Department of Agriculture Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (USDA APHIS), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). The goal of the project is to enhance the functioning of institutional animal care and use committees (IACUCs) by reducing noncompliance and self-imposed regulatory burden and enabling them to focus on animal welfare. This goal will be accomplished through the incorporation of active learning techniques into IACUC training curricula. The federal agencies of the ICARE Project funded an award administered by NSF in which PRIM&R will partner with the federal agencies in phase one of the ICARE Project, the ICARE Train-the-Trainers Institutes.
