Increased openness fosters meaningful public conversations about the critical role of animals in research, teaching and testing.
How Does It Work?
Openness about animal research involves communicating essential information about why animal studies remain essential to research that advances science and benefits humans and animals and how studies with animals are approved, conducted and monitored.
The U.S. Animal Research Openness Initiative invites institutions involved in research, teaching and/or testing with animals to engage in conversations about these essential studies.
