ICARE VIRTUAL SESSIONS

The Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education (ICARE) Project
The ICARE (Interagency Collaborative Animal Research Education) Project invites you to join us for Virtual Sessions
 
https://olaw.nih.gov/education/icare-interagency 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. 

Those who care for biomedical research animals have the responsibility of providing support to scientists and exemplary care to the animals that depend upon us. To support IACUC members and staff and animal care and use program personnel, the ICARE faculty offers new online programs, OLAW Conversations. The program will provide institutional animal care and use program personnel the opportunity to view presentations on the following topics:
