Ethics of Medical Research with Animals: Science, Values, and Alternatives
Principal Investigators: Thomas H. Murray, Gregory Kaebnick, and Susan Gilbert
Funder: The Esther A. and Joseph Klingenstein Fund
The goal of the project was to bring together people with different points of view and different areas of expertise on animal research ethics to share their knowledge, exchange ideas and insights, and produce unbiased educational resources: a Hastings Center special report, Animal Research Ethics: Evolving Views and Practices, and a website, animalresearch.www.thehastingscenter.org. The resources cover contemporary ethical arguments about animal research and describe new initiatives seeking alternatives to animal testing.
