“More Institutional Support for Animal Research Is Needed,” Says Society for Neuroscience CAR Chair

Yesterday, Mar Sanchez, chair of the Committee on Animals in Research at the Society for Neuroscience (SfN), wrote an exhilarating essay in Inside Higher Ed about the critical nature of animal research and how research institutions can, and must, do more to defend and promote their scientists.

In the essay Sanchez writes: “Institutional support is pivotal to the continuance of scientific discoveries. By taking a proactive approach to communicating the vital need for animal research, institutions help ensure researchers can focus on valuable work that could lead to the discovery of promising treatments for vast unmet medical needs and improve the lives and health of people and also animals around the world.”
