Animals in Research
INTRODUCING OUR NEWEST CURRICULUM:
THE SCIENCE AND ETHICS OF ANIMAL RESEARCH
Through this curriculum, students are introduced to the complex topic of Animal Research using structured discussion, stakeholder activities, case studies, and the ethical frameworks used by those in support of, and in opposition to, this work. One of the goals of the curriculum is for students to support their own position on this issue through well-reasoned, fact-driven justifications in a classroom atmosphere of respectful dialogue.
