Those of us in the biomedical research community are often asked by friends, family and acquaintances: why must we use animals in research? The Foundation for Biomedical Research (FBR) has just released a short new video that answers this very basic question and is designed to be a shareable teaching tool for the public.
Featuring several of the country’s leading scientists and medical experts, this video highlights why animal research is critical for medical progress and the advancement of both human and animal health.
Please take 5 minutes to watch and share it with those you know who may be curious about animal research. Share it with the public, your colleagues, and post it on social media to help increase awareness of the necessity of animal models in medical discovery.
