What People Are Saying
“I admire the fact that PZI’s vision is based on principles of social justice applied to all vulnerable beings, including animals held in and experimented on by the biomedical industry. Thanks to PZI’s global leadership, we can map out ways to work effectively for a world in which human health advances come from the most highly effective and ethical methods, those which are non-animal-based.” ~ Dr. Barbara J. King, Emerita Professor of Anthropology, William and Mary
“There is indeed a need for a Belmont Report for Animals. We are now fully aware of the harms we cause and the benefits we do and do not derive from those harms. . . . This is exactly why we are in need of a serious and global reassessment of how, why, and whether we harm other animals and a better roadmap for navigating that landscape.”
~ Dr. Agustín Fuentes, Professor of Anthropology, Princeton University
Transforming Medical Research was a revolutionary virtual panel and discussion that was simulcast on Thursday, January 27, 2022, at 7 pm EST/4 pm PST.
The event focused on helping chart a path toward more modern and more ethical research—to benefit and protect people and animals.
Our expert group of panelists discussed how we can
- Increase transparency
- Incentivize, through preferential funding, the use of modern and ethical human-centered, non-animal methods
- Create a roadmap toward more ethical and innovative patient-centered methods
