Dr. Carbone has worked in laboratory animal care for 25 years as a caregiver, veterinary technician, and veterinarian. He was a founding (student) member of Cornell University’s Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee (IACUC), where he took his veterinary degrees. He stayed on at Cornell as a staff laboratory animal veterinarian, and inspired by Professors Rowan, Tannenbaum, Arluke and others in the early days of the Tufts Center for Animals, developed a PhD dissertation and book on the intersection of science, medicine and ethics in laboratory animal welfare policy. His dissertation on the history and ethics of the Animal Welfare Act became his book: What Animals Want: Expertise and Advocacy in Laboratory Animal Welfare Policy (2004, Oxford University Press). He is specialty-board certified by the American College of Laboratory Animal Medicine, and in the new AVMA College of Animal Welfare.
