Initiated in 2013, the multiphase ICARE Project is supported and sponsored by the NIH OLAW, the USDA, APHIS, Animal Care, NSF, FDA, and the VA to empower IACUCs to increase compliance with federal standards while minimizing regulatory burden. The federal agencies of the ICARE Project funded an award administered by NSF and awarded to PRIM&R. In Phase 1 of the project, PRIM&R will partner with the federal agencies to convene two ICARE Train-the-Trainers Institutes (TTI). At these institutes, facilitators will train experienced IACUC leaders and educators in the use of active learning pedagogy to enhance the effectiveness of their IACUC training programs. Curriculum development for the TTIs has been spearheaded by a group of subject matter experts in IACUC issues and training, along with active learning experts. During this session, attendees will have the opportunity to:


  • Learn about the overall ICARE Project from a Federal representative
  • Learn about curriculum of the TTIs and the process for applying to participate
  • Ask questions about ICARE
