AnimalResearch.info is an educational resource for students, journalists and the general public provided by Understanding Animal Research (UAR).
Understanding Animal Research is a Mutual Society (not-for-profit organisation) that explains why animals are used in medical and scientific research. We aim to achieve a broad understanding of the humane use of animals in medical, veterinary, scientific and environmental research in the UK.
We are funded by our members who include universities, professional societies, industry and charities. As expert contributors, we provide, edit and translate the content of this website, making it as accurate and up-to-date as possible.
Science is a process, and sometimes there are competing theories - this is not the place where they do battle. This site aims to give the consensus opinion. If there is not yet a consensus then those mainstream theories with the most supporting evidence are considered, and their flaws noted.
