The primary ethical issue in biomedical research is not the researchers, nor the questions being asked, but the tools chosen to answer those questions. With the development of non animal methods and models, it is possible to bring compassion and better science to modern laboratories and classrooms.

The fact is, many alternatives already exist. Their implementation has brought us closer to the end of animal use in science, but we still have a long way to go. Researchers are working on new alternatives every day, with great support from the scientific and animal rights communities. The tools they’ve already created are nothing short of extraordinary:

Alternatives to Testing

What non-animal methods are available for product testing?

Research Alternatives

How are alternatives shaping the future of biomedical research?

Dissection Alternatives

What resources are available for humane science education?
