The Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project                                                   aims to empower IACUCs and their institutions to improve animal welfare and thus increase the quality of data collected, and increase compliance with federal standards while minimizing regulatory burden. ICARE Academies (IA) offer participants an understanding of research animal welfare and IACUC oversight issues through active learning and scientific teaching.
