Find out more about how leading scientists from around Europe have been answering your questions about their studies using animals.
EARA's #TransparencyThursday, which features regularly on our Instagram feed (and also on YouTube) is an initiative that allows the public the chance to find out exactly why scientists need to use animals to pursue their biomedical research.
Researchers post a video on EARA Instagram with a short description of their studies and invite viewers to ask them questions. A selection of the questions (examples pictured below) are then put to the researchers.
So far, researchers from Germany, Greece, Netherlands, Portugal and Switzerland have taken part in #TransparencyThursday.
The full Q&A videos are available here.
Here's the full list of researchers featured in this initiative:
