A new report that discusses the rising threat from US animal research activists will be discussed at a free webinar this week.
The report, overseen by the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), aims to provide a framework for the biomedical research community that demonstrates how outreach, education, and advocacy for animal research can effectively counter animal rights groups’ tactics.
Kevin C. Kregel, PhD, of the University of Iowa and FASEB President, said: “One of the most effective strategies that we can use to ensure continued scientific progress and limit the impacts of animal rights activism is to increase public education and communication about our institutions’ research programs. This report provides a roadmap for entities that conduct animal research to follow.”
The webinar takes place on Wednesday, April 12, 12:00 – 1:00 pm (ET). Register here.
