Humane care and use of animals
Major regulatory agencies across the globe require new
medicines to be evaluated in animals and humans. Humane animal care is
an essential aspect of high quality science. We voluntarily maintain
accreditation from AAALAC International for our animal programs, and
actively employ the internationally accepted 3Rs framework to minimize
animal use in our research. Learn more about Our Commitment to Humane Care and Use of Animals.
