Leading the Way on Alternatives to Using Animals in Experiments
The long-term goal of working with scientists to end harmful experimentation on tens of millions of animals in laboratories has always been an objective of The Humane Society of the United States.
At an international scientific conference in Montreal this week, we delivered a strong case that now is the time to spearhead a sustained effort to further develop alternative methods to replace animals in harmful research and testing altogether.
The venue for our presentation was the 8th World Congress on Alternatives and Animal Use in the Life Sciences—the premier forum for scientists, animal advocates, and others to discuss the current status of alternatives, as well as future prospects for advancing these methods.
